  • A must see Full of ancient gems. If you like museums, you'll love this one
  • The museum boasts of some of the spectacular findings of the Saqqara valley. It displays some magnificent statues and the sarcophagus of Imhotep, the man behind the idea of step pyramid. Also 4000 years old cheese found in the workers valley!! It has a visual room with a model of the step pyramid complex and shows a documentary of natgeo.
  • A must visit if you are in this area to check out oldest pyramids. We loved the museum for its artifacts, and it was pretty quiet as well when we visited during late evening.
  • So good to see BEFORE the site.
  • Nice place to visit for completing the touristic excursion at saqqara pyramid!
