Was so shocked that actual artifacts are in the museum. It's best with a tour guide to really have an understanding of what your looking at. The mummy room is extra, 120EGP.

Close to Tahir Square is a great place to see a bit of culture around the big hotels area. Beware to buy the Photography Tickets, along with your entry ticket, to avoid embarrassment during your selfies and photos session inside the Museum.

You feel going back few thousand years and imaging how life have been must that time. You can see and learn a lot here. Impressing how good the things were kept. Only thing is that many items are restaurated. Original view was looking sometimes better.

I was there last week in March. They were packing up a few things, but Tut is too popular to pack up early. It will be in one place or the other.
