See a collection of masterpieces from Ancient Egypt at Luxor Museum, an institution bringing together antiquities discovered in the Theban temples and necropolis. Established in 1975, the two-floor museum possesses a large number of important artifacts, including items recovered from the tomb of the iconic pharaoh Tutankhamen, as well as the mummies of pharaohs Ahmose I and Ramesses I. The museum brings the story of Ancient Egypt to life through a number of carefully designed reconstructions, interactive exhibits, and audio-visual materials. Such additional features set the imaginations of younger visitors going, making each piece seem relevant and part of an orchestrated whole. Luxor Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Luxor Edition.

  • Museum was quick visited. Some lovely peices to purchase all made out of dried sugar cane but they came with very high price tags. Worth a visit pictures were beautiful come as a scroll nice ones cost equivalent of £400 even though they did drop to £200.
  • Nice museum. It has a small selection of artifacts compared to the museum in Cairo but they are well presented. They have two mummies on display and some ancient statues in excellent condition.
  • Very nice museum even contains a mummy of a king. Most tours concentrate on valley of the kings only. This is a must see. Insist your tour includes this museum and king Ramsis 3 funeral temple
  • Easy to understand. I didn't expect only small collection of items. I see visitors quick visit of 10 to 15 minutes
  • Loved it. Nice to see and their is ticket for camera and pictures cost 20 le and their is a small movie before you enter the museum for 7 minutes you can watch to summarize the place and all statues have info under it so no need for guided tours.
