  • This is only a small museum but there are 8,000 exhibits in cases to view and that is only a selection of 10% of what they have. Entry is free and disabled access can be gained by speaking to the...  more »
  • Fascinating museum - many interesting Egyptian artifacts - well presented - but the museum itself is well hidden! Worth finding though!  more »

  • A small but compact museum with a huge variety of incredibly well preserved exhibits. The pottery room was a particular highlight for me, a really colourful look into Egyptian history. The venue is air conditioned too and has seating in the main room, so it's easy to rest if you need it. Highly recommended
  • Small but really interesting museum if you're interested in Egyptian history with super nice staff. There are a lot of items (more than you might inside in such a small museum and maybe it could be a little better curated), but many of the pieces are in really excellent condition (better than other world class museums) and there's a nice short guide that you're given that highlights a few of the hallmark pieces. Great to kill an hour or so.
