THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM built between 1897 and 1900 and stuffed with the 100 000golden treasures of pharoahs and the hordes of archaeological finds tracing Egyptian civilization over more than 5,000 years. The crowds tend to beeline for the golden, lapis-encrusted face of Tutankhamun and his other sumptuous funerary objects that made such a splash when they were discovered and later toured the world. It would literally take months to see everything on display, but don't miss The Palette of Narmer, a symbol of the original unification of Egypt more than five millennia ago. The best time to visit is in the afternoon, after the crowds thin. Open daily 9 a.m. to 6p.m.
anyhow Egyptian Museum is one of the greatest museums in Egypt
i advice any1 who come to egypt to visit it or you'll miss much
and dont forget that
The Egyptian Museum has more displays that render visitors speechless, including the royal Mummy Room where famous pharaohs lie in state. You come face-to-face with the exposed mummified head of Rameses II, the greatest pharaoh of all time.(but try to respect them cuz they were great kings, believe me they can feel that your watching them)
(as far as i remember entering the museum will cost you 40pounds(1USD=7 EG POUNDS) if you are non egyptian and for egyptian just 2pounds while entering the mummies room will cost you about 40egyptian pounds as well if you are a non egyptian while egyptians just pay 5egyptian pounds lol lucky me:p)
