  • Full of finds. The refurbishment then enhances even more. And in the halls of the pharaohs and sekhmets you can see the "hand" of a renowned set designer.

  • An impressive museum where we keep very good memories. I strongly recommend to visit it for adults and children at very interesting prices. If you go there on your birthday, admission is free. The visit takes 3 hours to see everything in detail. The museum is well arranged not very hot. Cool places. Seats on each floor for a short break. Nothing to say but to do.
  • I went back to the museum after its renovations, and I loved it. Some of the relics are absolutely stunning, and the curators focused on representing the Egyptian culture in both broad strokes and everyday-life details. You even find a couple of examples of "free" artistic expression, more independent from the fixed canon of the time, which I found was a lovely surprise. I am monitoring the temporary exhibitions' calendar looking for some excuse to go back
