  • It's really just a big room in the university with some exhibits, only a few of which have English placards. Admission costs €2.50 per person. Decent enough, but you'll only need 30 minutes here.  more »
  • Remember sometimes Germany, very helpful staff, had responded in English. Also if you happen to want.

  • The museum consists of one large space with display cases. Fine collection for such a small museum. Good explanation from a very enthuosiaste expert. Very good value for money.

  • This museum might be interesting to academics but to average tourists it's nothing. Very small with no big "wow" exhibits of mummies, sarcophagi, sculptures, pottery or jewelry.
  • Interesting and academic. It is a small museum but well documented.
  • ★★★★★
  • A very nice Museum with great offers. The Museum is quite small, but there are many objects and good showcases great descriptions of which you can learn a lot. And if then still questions are open, the staff are very friendly and like to open questions. These tours and workshops are offered and you can celebrate here wonderful children birthdays. In this museum there is something so for everyone. I'm always again happy to present especially to the many exciting evening :)

  • Very great, small museum. Of course, you can expect any huge Egyptian objects for a small University Museum in a city like Bonn. Of animal mummies, coffin lid, Mummy masks, as well as the smaller statues and casts are but the highlights for a small museum. In addition shows that were excavated at Bonn excavations on the Qubbet el-Hawa, are very special to the part of objects. The Museum has its own part, which deals with the cultural phenomenon of collecting and sensitized something for the topic, which often come in the many museums. The Museum staff are very friendly, helpful and competent. The Museum is highly recommended for short visits.
