One of the best museums in the world. What the Egyptian Museum lacks in lighting, display, and explanatory text, it makes up for fully with the sheer volume and quality of items on display. The King Tut exhibit is the highlight but be sure to budget plenty of time. I hate guided tours but would consider one here.Recommended for:

One of my favourite museums in the world just because of the way it is. Some absolute masterpieces of one of the world's greatest civilisations. And yes, there's King Tut's death mask too. Two tips: come at around 4pm and miss the coach parties; and, ignore the men outside who as you approach the building will tell you it's closed (and doubtless that you can wait at a brother-in-law's souvenir shop).
Alas, there's a slightly darker side to the Egyptian Museum... During the recent revolution(s), protesters exercising their democratic rights in Tahrir Square were dragged in here by secret police for 'interrogation'.Recommended for:

A dusty, disorganized beautiful mess, the Egyptian Museum is very similar to Cairo itself. Unless you're an Egyptologist, I suggest you hire one of the many tour guides lurking about the entrance to make sense of this symphony of disorder. Oh, and if you seen anyone not in military or police uniform holding a machine gun outside, run or hide for your life.Recommended for:

Best museum I have ever been to. I think our guide told us that if you were to stand in front of each artifact for 1 minute, it would take something like 40 years to see everything in the museum (so maybe these stats aren't exactly right, but the point is: there was a lot of stuff). My favorite section was the mummy display and King Tut's tomb artifacts. Truly an amazing collection.Recommended for:

You have to pay extra to see the mummies but I thought it was worth it. I did , however, have a student card; so I got a discount to the exhibit's entry fee. There is some fascinating stuff in this huge museum but it's hard to know what it is. Many of the exhibits lack signage. I believe there is a printed guide that you can buy at the gift shop. The place is huge, so give yourself at least a full day to see it.Recommended for:

The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, known commonly as the Egyptian Museum or Museum of Cairo, in Cairo, Egypt, is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities. One day isnt enough to see everything.Recommended for:

There are many valuable antiques that recorded the history of Egypt, however, it is not very well maintained. The showroom for King Tutankhamun on the 1st floor is a must see attraction you cannot miss.Recommended for:

The museum was very cool, intrigued me for a lot of stuff there, but what was interesting to me is a collections of tools which was the ancient Egyptians used in construction and in their other daily work. What I notice that our tools is the current evolution of her, but did not differ significantly and some are quite similar. This make me ask myself the question how this civilization vanished ? , I think it's a grate place to visit and you can find your own interesting things easily :)Recommended for:

You need to go here if you are in Cairo! They have an amazing collection of artifacts. It's awesome how much stuff they have from thousands of years ago. The museum is a bit scary if you are wandering around by yourself. It is a bit dark in some corners and the statues are so real and eerie. It was really neat seeing the King Tut exhibit as well. I think it was $20 more to see this. He was smaller than I thought.

Being in Tahrir Square was exciting enough.. But the museums offer more than anyone could dream of seeing in just one place. A must see when in the country. From the beginning emperors to modern day leaders, the museum covers the vastness of Egypts cultural history.Recommended for:

Although this is the ultimate collection of pharaonic egypt, the chaotic way it has been displayed made this experience less than perfect. king tut's room houses the gold mask in perfect condition. amazing.
