The greatest collection of antiquities from ancient Egypt by a huge margin. The manner of display is uninteresting and somewhat confusing. Add to that lack of printed materials or audio guides and you are almost certainly better off with a guide (the latter situation could...More

The Egyptian Antiquities Museum was full of wonderful artifacts spanning thousands of years. King Tut's room was a major highlight of the tour.

Incredible collection, especially for King Tut. There is more than you can see in a day. We squeezed in as much as we could.

There is something gritty about this museum, and authentic, which I really like. Not sure if the objects in the museum are doing OK with the stuffy air. The rooms that impressed me the most are the Middle kingdom- with the scribes and their magical...More

Once you have visited the Pyramids, a visit to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum is a must. The museum is a little worn, but the treasures are absolutely mind-blowing. Buy a guide as there are no plaques or explanations provided.

This museum is definitely worth a visit. No doubt about it! However, don't think you will see more here than in the British museum or in the Louvre. There is less and it's not as well presented! The reason is not that Egyptians are not...More
