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.

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'.

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.

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.

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.

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.
