Luxor Museum contains one of the best displays of Egyptian antiquities in Egypt and it opened in 1975. Housed within a modern building, the collection is limited in the number of items, but they are beautifully displayed.

Once inside the main museum area, two of the first items that catch one's attention are an enormous red granite head of Amenhotep III and the cow-goddess head from the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Spaced out around the ground floor are masterpieces of sculpture including a calcite double statue of the crocodile god Sobek and the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Amenhotep III
