Egyptian Museum, is the first place to visit especially when is your first visit to Cairo or even Egypt! I highly recommend this.

Reasons :

1. Is like short summary before going to major sights, easier to absorb and link of those places that you will eventually visit eg: The Giza Pyramids. Better than touring around the sights like headless chicken.

2. Even you have visited British Museum and read so much details about egyptian ancient history, visiting the museum will be another experience and you actually see the true artifact in front of your eyes! eg. Tutakhamun famous collection.

3. Is the best Egyptian collection of all world.
