The history in the museum is mind blowing. The statues, tombs, hieroglyphics all tell the story of the great kings and queens of Egypt. It taught me that the people of that time were definitely more advanced than I originally believed.

Prepare yourself for a trip through time. This place has no air conditioning so dress appropriately. Also wear good shoes! So important, because you'll want to see all of it, and there is 2 floors. The shear amount of things to see is crazy. All...More

All my life I dreamt of going to Egypt. It did not disappoint. The museum is wonderful. Sarcophagi, mummies, pharoah's jewellery, stele, carving, sculptures. Fabulous !

Grand Egyptian Museum of Cairo is a must see for any history fan. Despite the fact that most of the pieces of the collection do not have explanations, just seeing them will blow your mind. It's such an overwhelming feeling as if you are travelling...More

There is so much to see, from statues to mummies to items from King Tut's tomb. You really do need a guide as most items do not have descriptions and there are no audio guides available. We were very lucky to visit during a holiday...More

A visit to the Grand Egyptian is the equivalent of having every book that you have read about ancient Egyptian life come to life in front of your eyes. The collection is so deep that items that would be central pieces in any other museum...More
