In fairness, we are not a family of archeologists or scholars of ancient Egypt, but we were very interested in visiting the museum and seeing all of the King Tut artifacts. We were scheduled to spend three hours at the museum and were out in less than an hour. Everything you see is spectacular - but to the novice after walking through the museum (with a private guide) there was a lot of repetition. If you're like us... a mummy is a mummy is a mummy - this is a 45 minute stop. I'm very glad I went and a great lesson for the kids - no regrets. Travel tip - as of December 2020 they were planning to begin moving some of the more prominent pieces to the new museum opening in Giza. I'm not sure what will be remaining in this location once preparation for moving those items begins.

My expectations for this Museum were set very high. There were only a few mummies on display (Yuya and Thuya), and most everything was being packed up for the new Museum in Giza closer to the Pyramids. Some highlights was the areas dedicated for King Tut and the larger statues and granite tombs. Social-distancing was not always possible with all the other tourists packed into the museum so be cautious.

This is a must-see for everyone visiting Egypt. To see the mask of King Tut alone is a special experience for anyone!

Our Djed Egypt Travel guide, Hader, toured the museum with us. He walked us through the most important and pivotal artifacts in the museum and made the tour interesting. We still had plenty of time to tour independently. They are in the process of moving many of these artifacts to the new museum that will open in 2021, but there is so much to see and many iconic items are still currently housed here. Don't miss this museum!
