I only visit for conferences - they have a good lecture theatre (200 seats)

There is a long flight of steps down from the Cornche. Access is very poor for the disabled. The cafeteria has been closed for many years. The only time that I wanted to visit the... read more

There is a long flight of steps down from the Cornche. Access is very poor for the disabled. The cafeteria has been closed for many years. The only time that I wanted to visit the museum they would not accept my ITIC card for a discount. When my son visited he was short-changed - they fooled him with a 50... More

This is a quick visit while walking along the corniche. There are some interesting mummies and an explanation of the process. It can be seen in less than an hour.

First of all was I, as a woman, not allowed to be accompanied by a male Egyptian friend. They did not give us any explanations but told him to leave. It turned out, we would have had to be married or he would have had to have a signed paper by some tourist office to be allowed to accompany me.... More

It’s only a one-room museum but it was quite interesting with plenty of details on the mummification process. You can take photos inside for an extra 50 EGP. The mummification process is explained through text and diagrams mounted on the walls. All displays have signs in English. Mummification tools along with mummified flesh and skin are part of the displays.... More

This museum takes only about 45 minutes for a relaxed view of mummification. Mummy of Prince Masaharta, generalissimo in Luxor under the Libyan kings is showcased.

You should really take some time and reflect while here. This museum houses some of the best mummified pieces anywhere. The museum is small, but the artifacts are of high quality. There is a mummified money, which looks like it died a few years back, but its dated some thousands of years ago. After visiting this place, I can understand... More

Great to see how exactly the mummification procedure was done..... There's only one human mummy but many animals, too. It's all about the process not an exhibit of mummies (who would all look the same anyway!)!

I don't recommend this as there is not much to look at. Its not very expensive but only 1 mummy to see. Much better to go to the luxor museum.

Quite nice to see all tools clear that were used during the mumification process on people and animals. Animals such as goats, ducks, crocodiles and cats etc were sacred to the ancient Egyptians but also part of their daily lives. As well as Humans animal mummies were also on display. Inside the museum as you walk round there is a... More
