Here you can see mummies, sarcophagi, coffins, jewelry and statues. Among the finds that have impressed me most, surely there is the tomb of kha and Merit found virtually intact!! Useful info: in January the queue is long even if it is always best to take your ticket online. Ticket costs 15 euros and it's all because they give you also the audio guide. There are many special rates for different categories. Length of visit for us was 5 hours but we are really fans of Egyptology, usually of average 3-hour trip you can do. ...

After travelling through Egypt and spending a day in the Cairo museum and lots of time in the British museum; this is the best museum I have seen on ancient Egypt. The curator of this museum has done an outstanding job and the audio guide is excellent. The Cairo museum, although larger, is nowhere near as well structured and a lot of the artifacts are poorly looked after. This makes the this museum a far better experience. Don't miss this museum if you have even a mild interest in Egyptian history.
