The Egyptian Museum is an amazing place to visit!!!! It is full of statues, mummies and other old Egyptian things... ;) And of course it is home to Tutankhamun's mask and his other gold/jewellery. We only had a few hours at the museum but you could easily spend a full day or even a full week looking through this place...unfortuantely we ran out of time to go back for a second look.

It costed 40 LE to get into the Egyptian Museums...

If you plan to go along then make sure you get there as early as possible...the huge crowds seem to turn up around 11 am and by then the museum is so full you can hardly move...
