"A must" Egyptian Museum of Antiquities Tip by renatob

Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, Cairo: 208 reviews and 327 photos

No visit to egypt,unless you go to sharm....,has a sense without a visit to this museum.I spent half of a day and it wasn t enough.There are many displays from the treasure of Tutankamen to the mummies room and many other rooms to be discovered.Take your time don t rush and visit even the less known parts of the museum.Everytning is worthy inside.I was amazed by the conditions in which all the artefacts were preserved showing us how great the egyptian civilization was and at what level of culture they achieved around 4000 years ago when Rome was still divided in 60 small villages.......
