  • There were some interesting exhibits in the Museum, but only worth it for experts and passionate about Egypt

  • The stable collection of the Museum is good, but if it were only that it would be very little. Just agreed our visit with a temporary exhibition of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb which we loved. Very nice visit. Very interesting pieces. And up made us a small discount for having traveled on the tourist bus.

  • While those who arrive or not equivalent, where knowing the place and a museum. Frankly, the British Museum, the Louvre Museum has the incredible works of Egypt such as museums gallant found this place as one of the very shallow in terms of inventory. It's not worth that price. But there will be no possibility of any other in his life of wandering and the Egyptian Museum, people certainly can see around ...

  • Nice and interesting museum. The temporary exhibitions are extraordinary and very updated. Permanent collection shows a classic work-of-art exhibit, it's interesting by itself because represents a history of Museology.
  • A treasure trove! So unassuming from the street, with so much to discover inside. Perhaps not what you go looking for in Barcelona but this is worth the visit.
  • Small museum that's enjoyable for those who have never been to Egypt and don't know much about the ancient times.
  • I really liked this small and manageable museum. Quite educational and enjoyable.
  • interesting. worth a visit if you have time or on a rainy day
