Howard Carter stayed here when he discovered King Tut's tomb. The house shows how he lived one hundred years ago. There are about a dozen furnished rooms to explore. The thick walls keep the heat out.

This is a great little spot to learn about Howard Carter and the discovery of Tut’s tomb. The replica of the tomb is perfect. I was the real one right before and they are really indistinguishable beyond the extra rooms in the replica. The caretaker is a really, really nice man who goes out of his way to make the experience a special one. Please visit! I was told I was the first visitor in several weeks.

Spent a week in Luxor in 12/2009 and found the the Egyptian government has just opened Howard Carter's house on the West side (free entry at the moment) and found it to be very interesting with pictures, sketches of Tut's stash and the mummy. This was the house Howard Carter lived in while excavating the Tomb of Tutankhamen complete with his work station, type writer, bed, kitchen, etc. The highlight of the visit was a 20 minutes video of Howard Carter hollow-gramme giving the audiance the historical events that lead to the discovery of King Tut's tomb and his relation with Lord Carnarvon. The house is decorated with historical pictures of some the temples as it appeared in the 1920's. Well worth a visit.

He spent around 15 to 20 years there in a comfortable house completing the work cataloguing what was found in Tutankhamun tomb.

Not crowded and very interesting to see. A "snapshot in time" and a pretty setting. Interesting to see how the explorers lived while they excavated in the area.

Very cool place to visit and see where this man probably spent the least amount of his time as he was probably sleeping at dig sites most of the time.

A visit to this house is somewhat of a respite from the crowded temples and landmarks of Luxor. It's not usually visited by tour buses and tour groups. Ours was arranged through a private tour and there was nobody else there when we visited. It's the house of the Egyptologist who discovered the boy king's tomb, King Tutankhamun. It provided an interesting insight into his life and where he lived while on his search. Within the grounds is a replica of King Tut's tomb. This is a nice representation and you don't have to pay the ridiculous extra fee for the actual tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

You can almost imagine the great man at work when you visit here. It’s a short visit and no idea whether all the stuff is Carter’s. The King Tut mock tomb is quite well done too.

I was expecting to see a glimpse into the life of Howard Carter but all I came away with was the feeling that it has been neglected and needs a good clean.
Everything was covered in a layer of dust and most of the items have been sourced from other places to make it look like his stuff !
You would think that the authorities would take more care of this very important house and not just concentrate on getting money from us tourists !

The information provided in this museum was probably the most extensive and informative that I have seen in any museum in Egypt. You can see a lot of the items that Howard Carter used while he lived here, including his notes, radio and record player. Next to the museum, they built a replica of Tutankhamen's tomb to relieve some of the pressure on the original tomb caused by the enormous numbers of visitors. It is very well made. My friend and me were the only visitors, and while this made it more relaxing for us, I would encourage more tourists to visit this cool museum!
