During most tours, the visit is swift and only touches the highlights. We went back the second day and spent 3 more hours, which still wasn’t enough. The bad thing there is no explanation on most pieces, no audio tours, and no official guides. Hopefully...More

The Egyptian museum is definitely a Must-Do in Cairo! It was so exciting to see the many rooms of King Tut's treasures, the Mummy's room and so many other exciting and important relics of past ages. Recommended for sure!

If you don't visit the Egyptian National Museum of Antiquities in Cairo (including in particular the King Tut Exhibits and the Mummy Room), you will have missed one of this world's most remarkable and most memorable collections of mankind's cultural history!

I was there last week in March. They were packing up a few things, but Tut is too popular to pack up early. It will be in one place or the other.
