First time back in Saqqara after several years. What a surprise: the Horemheb museum. Very neat, very well presented objects all found localy. Quality of the items unsurpassed,not even in the main museum in Cairo. Must be recommended. Small museum, but a real gem.

Everything in this museum was found at Saqqara. Small, well laid out, well displayed.My favorite is the first room, with reliefs and faience tiles from the chambers under the Djoser complex. Actual visit was Halloween 2011.
