Egyptian Museum Tours

From the Royal Mummy Room to a number of glittering galleries showcasing finery extracted from various ancient tombs, there's a ton to see at the Egyptian Museum, also known as the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. Getting around to all 107 halls in one trip is tough, so you'll want to choose a few subjects or exhibits that are most important to you.

Although the entire museum is filled with artifacts from as far back as the prehistoric period, the most renowned exhibit is, without a doubt, the collection of treasures once belonging to King Tutankhamun—don't miss the astonishing solid gold death mask. Other highlights include the Amarna Room, devoted to Akhenaten; the Greco-Roman mummies; and the larger-than-life statue of Khafre, considered by many to be the museum's masterpiece.

Practical Info

By metro, get off at Sadat Station and follow signs to the Egyptian Museum. General museum admission costs LE 60 for foreigners, but entrance to the Royal Mummies Room costs LE 100 for foreigners. Entrance to the Centennial Gallery costs an additional LE 10. Exhibit labels are written in both Arabic and English, while audio guides are available in English, French, and Arabic for an additional fee of LE 20. Note that photography is not allowed inside the museum.
