Recommended to learn history, art and archaeology of Egyptian culture.
This well maintained museum contains around 30,000 artifacts. The ticket price includes a very informative video guide. The museum does not allow big bags and ANY KIND OF BACK-PACKS. They offer a paid cloak room service (1€). Keep an eye on their website for special opening hours. Sometime they remain open till late night and offer a reduced ticket price for all. You can expect a long queue on these special opening hours.
One of the best permanent museums I ever visited. Audio guides are awesomely developed. With videos and additional.images and info about the shown items. The whole your may take up to 6 hours, but if you are on a hurry (closure time comes fast), be sure to visit properly the King's and Gods' statues room, that is the last one. Is truly the best place of it all.
The museum is smaller than I expected but even so it managed to strike me in its completeness and organization. The flow of the exposure is chronological and follows the entire history of Ancient Egypt. Audio guides are well timed and not too long or overly detailed, something I particularly liked was the possibility of doing a "short" tour of about an hour instead of the 150 minutes of the full tour. This also helps with prioritization in case something isn't of particular interest for the visitor. The new curator has significantly extended opening hours and is still very much involved in expanding the already impressive collection.
Incredible experience. €15 a ticket price includes the audio. We did the in-depth version and spent 3 and a half hours walking around. The lady at the desk flawlessly spoke both French and English, we were impressed, without an accent. The place was packed but I didn't notice the people as I was focused on the audio. Be aware that people take a million photos and while you are studying the detail an ipad will be shoved beside your face to take a picture of that detail. I highly recommend that you visit here.
I spent 5 hours here with a friend and we had to rush through the last few rooms because the Museum was closing: there's a ton of interesting stuff to see! The audio guide is really well done, with settings for children, quick tour and detailed tour. They also let you take as many photos as you like (with no flash)! Definitely worth a visit.
