This museum has a collection of history that deserves another visit. The mummification process and actually seeing people who still have hair and toe nails in the Mummies Room was awesome. I just wish I could've taken pictures.

This museum contains some of the most fabulous artifacts on the planet, so it is always crowded. The finds from Tuankhamun's tomb are gorgeous. The mummies are fascinating and you could spend a whole vacation just visiting this museum.
