After a morning in Giza visiting the Great Pyramids, we toured Memphis and Saqqara which were both amazing as well. The massive statue of King Ramsey II was incredible - to see such beautiful carvings from so long ago is unbelievable. The rest of of...More

I don't think of this as a Museum, it is more a single statue of Ramses II with a few smaller statues outside the building and a number of shops. More people trying to sell you something which was made in China. It is worth...More

Entry fee of LE40. Not much to see except the Giant statue of Ramses II and a granite sphinx of Ramses II. This is best included in a day trip with Saqqara and or Dahshur

An interesting, if small, museum south of Cairo which can easily be combined with Saqqara and Dahshur. Main things to see are the statue of Rames II and a smaller version of the sphinx.

after seeing the egyptian antiquities museum or the pyramids or valley of kings ... this open air museum disappoints. can be given a miss or at the most a 30 min visit. the drive is quite long though.

This was a great little stop off on our way to other places. We only spent about an hour or two here but that was more than enough. There is a collection on different monuments, some have information, others are just left to your imagination....More

The place is drab. Just a collection of sculptures moved here from other locations. No interpretation provided. The big sphinx outside was the only thing I found interesting.

It was amazing to visit this place which is the No. 1 wonder of the world. Must visit this place once in your life time.

It was really very different. The statue is laying down and you can look down on it. Numerous artifacts are present and are different.

Memphis museum is a bit out of the way but well worth visiting as much less crowded than other touristy places. It is small but has some well preserved statues including Rameses II and Sphinxes. If you have time I would recommend a visit as...More
