Beautiful and historic.

Several levels of historical artifacts, history and extensive collection of antiquities, the collection of treasures for Tutankhamen is quite amazing and eye opening, a must visit until the new museum is open and functioning, hire a tour guide company as you will get the most information through a guide that you can get through visiting alone.

Exquisite art and history. Only problem was that they have removed much and taken to the new museum which is not open yet. Still has King Tuts mask and jewelry though which is great bu itself

So much to see
May 2021
This museum is ginormous! There are two floors and several rooms you can easily miss. The King Tut exhibit is awesome to see, but be advised you cannot take pictures of it and they do enforce this. The only disappointing thing is that many artifacts did not have a placard explaining what you are looking at. They have been moving things to the new museum opening soon, but there is so much I didn’t miss it. There are security checkpoints you’ll be stopped at, which is common in Egypt. We had two people stop us near the entrance and tell us the museum was closed for a little while longer for prayer (and then recommend a store to go to while we wait.)

Beautiful Museum.

There was so much to see at this museum. I think it is currently being prepared for a move to a new location but I'm not sure. We didn't have enough time there to see all of the treasures!

You need time to visit all the museum. When we were, it was very crowded and also our guide explained everything in a rush. We were like running from a place to another and everything seemed to be so interesting.

On its way out but...
May 2021
The museum is currently being prepared for a move over to a fantastic new building out by the pyramids. Some of the artefacts have already moved, others are now boxed and the whole place has an air of being shut down. However, there are still some pretty cool things to see and, apart from pyramids, this would still be top of my 'in Cairo' list.

Visit it
May 2021
The museum it’s mostly been replaced by a newer museum and most of the mommies are moved. It has many valuable pieces of history but the place could have been better cleaned and weather proof. There is no paper in the restrooms and many women waiting for a tip from you to provide you what should be inside.
