The Egyptian National Museum, the religious beliefs and living environment of the ancient Egyptian people, the ancient Egyptian civilization, the secrets of the ancient Pharaohs are revealed here for you. There are extra charges for photography inside the museum and for visiting mummies. The whole museum is authentic.
The Egyptian Museum is one of the most famous museums in the world. It is known as the "Pharaoh Museum" because it collects the relics of the Pharaoh period. It is located in the Liberation Square of Cairo. It is a treasure house of ancient Egyptian civilization with a history of more than 3000 years. There are more than 300,000 cultural relics in the museum. Only 63,000 of them are on display, accounting for about one fifth of all cultural relics. King Tutankhamun's gold mask is the treasure of the town hall (no shooting).
The murals in the Valley of the Emperor, the reliefs of the front law, are painted with various mineral pigments. The ancient Egyptians believed that through the description of plastic arts, through the Scriptures and incantations of priests'rituals, the scenes depicting his wartime achievements and entertainment and sacrifice activities before his death would be transferred to the world after his death. Although these murals have traversed a thousand years of history, they are still vivid today.

Each Museum carries different stories. For us, we can look at the historical changes of a country and a region and go through the years. The Egyptian Museum holds countless treasures. The treasure of the town hall here is the cultural relics unearthed from the tomb of Tutankhamun.
Incredible history; King Tut artifacts galore, collections of oddities plus significant historical pieces that never leave the museum. Dark and somewhat hard to see in many areas of the museum, but an important must see.It is surprising that many large artifacts are left out in the open where people can touch them when passing by. Some areas of the museum are packed shoulder to shoulder with people, so there is a good deal of shuffling to get up close to the exhibits, especially around anything connected with King Tut.Be sure to go into the small alcove rooms on the perimeter of the main rooms, expecially at the rear of the museum. These rooms are fairly dark, but have exhibits worth seeing. If there is a huge crowd of people, it may be hard to notice the doorways into these rooms, just travel around the perimeter before leaving each floor... the ones I remember are on the second floor at the rear.
Wow. What an awesome Museum! I personally have always been fascinated by ancient egyptian history so this place was just a treasure trove (literally!) filled with all kinds of artifact. The ancient Egyptians were a crazy lot I tell you with sisters marrying half brothers and Kings pretending to be the progeny of gods to gain power and what not. I'd say you need at least 2h here if not 3h to take this place in fully. Be sure to go with a tour guide, no need to pre-arrange as one can be easily found outside the museum. Just be sure to look for the official tour badge credentials around their neck. It's pretty much a necessity to go with a tour guide as many of the artifacts are not well labeled but please do haggle for a good price (as is the case for anything else in Cairo).
You need to go here if you are in Cairo! They have an amazing collection of artifacts. It's awesome how much stuff they have from thousands of years ago. The museum is a bit scary if you are wandering around by yourself. It is a bit dark in some corners and the statues are so real and eerie. It was really neat seeing the King Tut exhibit as well. I think it was $20 more to see this. He was smaller than I thought.
We were on a private tour of the museum and so got a lot of the history and highlights. We also had the opportunity to touch some of the artifacts (bizarrely- not sure how long this practice will last). The museum is large and chaotic so it would be fun to explore on one's own. Now that I have children, I would love to take them here.
I was so happy to visit the King Tut exhibit in its homeland, at the Egyptian Museum..and not at the British Museum, or anywhere else. the museum itself is quite fantastic and has a lot of great exhibits. Again, why is it so fantastic?! it is because they are being displayed and represented in their home.
