Officially called the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, downtown Cairo's star attraction feels more like the warehouse of Indiana Jones than a traditional museum. Like the rest of Egypt, the organization may be a bit chaotic but it's worth it to spend at least half a day wandering the museum's two main floors. The highlight of the Pharonic treasures here are without a doubt the mummies of famous Egyptian Pharaohs. Queen Hatshepsut is the most recently discovered mummy here, while the remains of King Tutankhamen's tomb is the most visited attraction; check out the the 24-pound gold mask of King Tut's face.

A treasure trove of the Pharaonic world, Cairo's Egyptian Museum is one of the world's great museum collections. The faded pink mansion in downtown Cairo is home to a dazzling amount of exhibits.
It's a higgledy-piggledy place, with little labeling on offer and chronological order severely lacking, but that's half of its old-school charm.
The museum's two highlight collections are the haul of golden treasures unearthed from Tutankhamen's tomb in the Valley of the Kings and the fascinating Royal Mummies exhibit room.
Every corner you turn here, though, is home to some wonderful piece of ancient art or statuary that would form a highlight of any other museum.

Egypt's most mysterious museum, unveil the millennium pharaoh veil! The museum has a collection of 250,000 cultural treasures of Egypt. Friends say that even if we visit for two days and two nights, we have to go see it.
Stepping into the main building, a thick atmosphere mixed with historical turmoil came. The most outstanding thing is that Tutankhamun is displayed with funeral objects. The golden bed, the golden chair, the golden rod, and the golden glory!
The pharaoh is quietly lying in a constant temperature and humidity glass box. When everything is dusty, even if it is left behind, it is empty.
Tips: The Egyptian museum is not big as it is only two floors, but the collection is rich and compact. If it is not clear; you can accompany the tour guide at the door; the ticket price is 350 lbs/person. If you need to take a photo, pay a photo charge.
The oldest museum in Africa, face to face with mummies! Unveiling the mysterious veil of Pharaoh
The Egyptian Museum is known as the Pride of Cairo. It is like a Treasure Island, full of treasures, vast and vast. My friend and I first came here, lost in the cultural relics, and turned to lost the road.
Pure gold enamel with glaze and ivory, god whip scepter and visceral snow can, wearing a sacred snake like a pharaoh statue wearing a gold skirt, 4700 years of vivid papyrus painting... Tens of thousands of treasures are private, just like this millennium old city, sometimes faint and sometimes bleak.
Tips: Before 9:00 am and after 3 pm, the museum has a small flow of people and the largest number of visitors at noon; if you want to take photos or take photos, remember to buy a photo coupon in advance (there will be staff to check) ticket). The most wonderful golden masks and golden dragonflies are on the second floor. If you don't want to line up, you can stroll upstairs.
