  • The Exhibits very well made. Clearly the creators have done a very realistic job of re-creating the tomb artefacts with great attention to detail, accuracy and authenticity. Top marks to the design team! Loved the Sarcophagus and gold throne and ante chamber rooms; and the original photos taken at the time of Howard Carter's dig. Not sure though, why there is an extra charge to see the mummy exhibition also in the same building. Overall good exhibition, history buffs will enjoy.
  • There's a lot crammed into an old church building. You have to do a lot of reading but it's interesting stuff. All the artifacts are reproductions but they're very good indeed. We paid extra to go upstairs for the mummy exhibits but unless you're really into mummies I'd give it a miss.
