Good museum, had to wear local linen size huge slippers over my flip flops which resulted in a health and safety issue during the visit! The boat is incredible and worth a look, no photos allowed apart from on your cell phone which was annoying.

Worth a visit. As two travelling Aussies, this was another place in Cairo that benefits greatly by having a guide. They can bring the experience to life for you.
