  the building
by aalayaa

one of the must place to be visited in cairo.
there are so many ancient displays here, if you want to see all of them, you need about 4 months.
the building was built by the french, with lotus pond in the front garden.
the highlight of the exhibition is the items from king tut's tomb, one of the tomb still untouch by thieves.
you're not allow to take any pictures inside the building but outside in the garden is ok.
if you want to see the mummy, you have to buy additional ticket.
inside the museum, there are souvenir shop, but the stuffs are expensive. it's cheaper if you buy in the khalili market
