    It was not possible to take pictures in the museum, but fortunately it has been available since December 2015, but you have to buy a 60 photo ticket for one person, and there are staff inspections on the way from time to time. But Tutankhamun's gold mask and the two rooms of the pharaoh's mummy are still inaccessible. Museums are large, and it's best to have at least half a day. I spent nearly three hours with the group, including explanations, and only looked at some of the main rooms before I could look at them. The pharaoh's mummy room costs an additional 100 pounds to buy tickets. The most exquisite belongs to Tutankhamun's funeral articles. The whole corridor is his belongings.

    The Egyptian Museum was designed and constructed by Mariett, a famous French archaeologist known by Egyptians as the father of the Egyptian Museum, in Pra, northern Cairo, in 1858. It is one of the world's most famous museums. Located in Liberation Square, Cairo, Egypt, the museum collects more than 300,000 cultural relics and displays 63,000, accounting for about one fifth of all cultural relics. Because the museum is mainly a collection of cultural relics from the Pharaoh period, the Egyptians used to call it the "pharaoh museum". Egypt is one of the four ancient civilizations with rich natural collections in museums. The gold masks, human-shaped golden coffins and golden thrones in Tutankhamun's showroom are among the treasures of the Egyptian Museum. We visited the mummy (need to buy additional tickets), also saw the treasure of the town hall gold mask..... Photography is strictly prohibited in the museum, cameras and other cameras need to be stored in the import. Because Egypt's political situation is not very stable, there are military guards outside the museum, there are special tourist police. The policemen in front of the museum were very friendly and took the initiative to take pictures for us. The fourth picture is a building burned down by the Egyptian riots in 2011 near the museum. According to local tour guides, it was they (mainly intellectuals) who formed a human wall hand in hand to avoid the museum being destroyed, but cultural relics were still destroyed in the museum.

    More than 300,000 pieces of collections are on display only a small part, most of which are ancient Egyptian relics of 35,000 years ago, many priceless treasures. Full of history, full of stories, marvel and reverie to explore the fascination, can not help but be moved. The treasure of the town hall comes from the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who was excavated more than 3,000 years ago. It is Tu V, dressed in fashionable sandwiches, with numerous treasures of brilliant gold, golden mask (no photographs), golden coffin, golden chair, golden bed, golden coffin, which shines blindly. In addition to exclamation or amazement. Latin America II, Tutmus III, these have been in history books. The people who read and felt the mythological stories appeared unexpectedly, as if attracted by a mysterious force, the charm and magic of ancient Egyptian civilization can not be said. However, although treasures are everywhere, it is appropriate to use "land" because quite a part of them are placed on the ground at will, crowded together (really crowded), no shelter, no name, no name, no name, too many babies, only the top number is given a cover, most of them can be touched casually, the camera bought tickets can bring in the camera (except the two forbidden libraries), is it just for the sake of earning another sum of money, mobile phones can be taken casually? Collections and exhibitions are self-willed, and there are still a lot of dust lying in corners or warehouses. Ancient Egyptians, ancient Egyptian civilization and subsequent immigrants, the present residents of Arabs do not have a relationship of half a dime or only money, reflected in the attitude of modern Egyptians to ancient Egyptian cultural relics is not surprising. Unfortunately, such an ancient and splendid civilization has been interrupted.

    [Day3 Searching for Ancient Egyptian Civilization Egyption Museum] Greedy plunder from the West and contempt from the Arabs have seriously damaged ancient Egyptian logistics. Thank Mr. Auguste Mariette, the French, for his help in establishing museums and passing down many precious and priceless cultural relics. The museum, completed in 1902, is currently the world's most famous and largest museum of ancient Egyptian cultural relics. It contains over 300,000 pieces of cultural relics and exhibits over 60,000 pieces. The exhibition hall is divided according to the historical periods of the ancient kingdom, the Middle Kingdom and the new kingdom. Before he came, Zhu Dao did his homework and, according to Tusuoji, went to look for some of the most dazzling treasures. It's hard to imagine that most of these exquisite works of art have a history of at least 3,000 years. We lingered in Ebo for nearly six hours, but we still have no idea.

    Please remember: these sculptures, paintings, sarcophagus, white jade, stone, paper and so on, all happened 4500 years ago! At that time, Chinese culture was still in the legendary era, and Egypt had already witnessed the wealth and exquisite works of literature and art of an enemy country. Out of the perseverance of resurrection and immortality, Egyptian rulers left mummies and a large number of funerary objects, unintentionally inserting willows, leaving a large number of artistic treasures to mankind. A single cultural relic unearthed from Tutcalmon's tomb is enough to amaze the world. Surprisingly, the power of wealth and power more than 4,000 years ago

    The Egyptian Museum is absolutely a treasure of human civilization. Noda's Pavilion is densely packed with countless cultural relics excavated from ancient Egyptian land. People who like historical relics will go crazy when they come here. They just can't stop taking pictures to hide their excitement. If you need to take photos, you must buy extra tickets at the ticket office. There are really staff inspections in the exhibition hall.

    During the holidays, we went to Egypt to find a local travel agency, which started from Israel, to sign on the ground (because the Egyptian Embassy is too lj, inefficient, we ran three times, took six trains and refused to sign). The first stop after getting off the plane is the Egyptian Museum, which is equipped with English tour guides. If the self-help tour does not want to invite the director to explain, it is better to know the history of ancient Egypt and the role of their various tools before coming, which is worthy of so many cultural relics. When traveling to Egypt, you must bring your student ID card (with or without an international student ID card in English). Most famous scenic spots are half-price. There are a lot of collections, only a few of which are replicas, and they are very shocking. If you are interested in mummies, you need to buy new tickets. You can visit two mummy rooms. The price is similar to the museum ticket. There are more than a dozen mummies of pharaohs and kings, which is a bit disgusting. We went in winter so the temperature was just right. There seemed to be no air conditioning in summer.

    It has a long history, rich collection, eternal theme of rebirth and resurrection of ancient Egypt. The golden mask is amazing. Between the square inches of papyrus, it can also be a ten-meter long roll. It is as long as the mummy, but more beautiful than the pyramid. It has been handed down for thousands of years, but it is unique and unchanged for thousands of years. Here I feel the historical and cultural details of Egypt for 7000 years.

    The ticket to the Egyptian Museum is 75 pounds. If you want to take a picture, buy another 50 pounds. In Egypt, many places go in and are subject to security checks. Museums are no exception. The Egyptian Museum is divided into two floors with more than 120,000 works. On the first floor, different stone statues are displayed in time. There is also a Royal Mummy Hall on the second floor, displaying famous Pharaoh mummies such as Ramses II, Amenhotep II and Dudmoses IV. The latter is more prominent in the preservation of hair and eyebrows and eyelashes. From the sixth step to the second floor, most of the exhibits are accompanied by Tutankhamen funerary objects, which were found in the tomb of Emperor Valley on November 5, 1922. There are some, chariots, bows and arrows, clothing, beds and chairs, statues and snowflake gypsum cups, etc. The Egyptian Museum is where we read history. Egypt is the mother of the world, with more than seven thousand years of history and culture. I highly recommend it.

    1. Near the Liberation Square in downtown Cairo, it opened in 1902 and is the world's most famous and largest Egyptian archaeological museum. 2. The museum is divided into two floors, one is displayed according to the historical age, the other is displayed according to the theme, so when visiting the first floor, you can visit it in chronological order as possible (5000 years ago, from the Pharaonic Age of ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire in the 6th century A.D.). On the second floor, we mainly focus on "Tutankhamun Exhibition Hall" and "Yuya and Tuya Exhibition Hall"; 3. Since the historical and aesthetic value of the exhibits in this museum has exceeded the scope that can be described simply, I have no choice but to make some suggestions to you. "(1) Before visiting, we should try our best to learn more about ancient Egyptian history and ancient Egyptian mythology, and absolutely greatly improve our visiting experience. Feelings; (2) If economic conditions permit, there are a large number of Chinese guides to choose from, and poor tourists can choose to travel group guides; (4) The new Egyptian Museum is currently under construction, said to open next year, some exhibits have been placed in the past; (5) Adult tickets 160 pounds (contract 64), student tickets half-discount, photography. There is an extra charge for film and video (in fact, no one cares about you except the Tutankhamun Hall). It is recommended to set aside at least four hours of visiting time.
