Dedicated to the architect of the step pyramid, this modern museum is air-conditioned and has plenty of statues, antiquities and information on the daily life of the Egyptians over 5,000 years ago.
The coffin in this picture is dated to approx 360 B.C. and made from wood. Although no mummy was found inside the coffin, there is an inscription on the lid that advises the ?owner? to be Imhotep himself.
