  • Fantastic museum with a great collection. The best outside Egypt. Well presented. Great audio program. My advice to parents. Leave small kids under 3 or 4 at home. You need 3 hours to see this collection and the kids start crying as it's too long for them. The screaming kids were a bad distraction.
  • Beautiful museum of Egyptian history! I visited with my 9 year old son. We got two different audio - records to follow. His was connected with fun and finding things, mine was for adults on history alone. My son loved it and can't wait to go to a museum again! Wow! That is full points!
  • The collection is very extension and curated very very well. Everything is explained well in both italian and english. There is heaps to see and lots of wow factor. What I particularly liked was that apart from the exhibits there was a lot explained about the actual collection trips and digs so many years ago. I really really liked the large photos which showed the digs and the state of the finds. Marvellous. So much so that we had thought we had finished and then walked into a series of large rooms with the larger statuary - a massive wow from me. We went in about 1pm on a weekday and it was relatively quiet.
  • Great collection!! Beautiful historic building. Can spend all day here as there are many interesting rooms full of Egyptian treasures and artifacts. The Kings Hall definitely has the 'wow' factor. The coffee bar and restaurant was great to have lunch at too.
  • We had to wait outside under the rain while there was plenty of space inside before the ticket office. Didn't like it. About the museum, it's nice but I didn't love it. Environment is too modern for such ancient things
