If we had only visited this museum I would say that it was very expensive. However, we purchased a ticket that gave admission to other smallish museums in the same area, all within walking distance of each other. Lots of things to read about and...More

Not bad place to visit if you have got time to waste. Not to be taken too seriously as only replica's are available to see. A lot of money to pay for just a small exhibition. Not very good access for disabled people.

We had bought a collective ticket covering a lot of different museums so while I acknowledge that the museum is pricey, it can be mitigated. The displays are good with some effort at more modern electronic elements. The displays of the tomb are good. I'd...More

This small museum has a number of treasures, artifacts and wordy exhibits, and takes about an hour to look round. We found the children's quiz quite disjointed and confusing over where to find the answers. At £8.99/£6.99 per adult/child, there was an extra charge to...More

Was quite disappointed in the visit,I think the £8.99 entry fee is a bit steep for what is there,wanted more to see the mummies!!!
