Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos
The CAIRO EGYPTIAN MUSEUM at Midan el-Tahir hosts the largest & most important collection of Egyptian art in the world. Walk back in time & relish in the many treasures & ancient artifacts. Look out for the famous funerary mask of Tutankhamun made of gold & set with precious stones & inlaid with lapis lazuli, turquoise & carnelian.
The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun with its immense treasures of art not pilferated has made it one of the most famous. At the museum you'll also see the 3rd coffin of Tutankhamen, made of 110 kg of solid gold!
So many items to see & explored; a minimum of 6 hours is recommended.
