It’s only a one-room museum but it was quite interesting with plenty of details on the mummification process. You can take photos inside for an extra 50 EGP. The mummification process is explained through text and diagrams mounted on the walls. All displays have signs in English. Mummification tools along with mummified flesh and skin are part of the displays.... More

This museum takes only about 45 minutes for a relaxed view of mummification. Mummy of Prince Masaharta, generalissimo in Luxor under the Libyan kings is showcased.

You should really take some time and reflect while here. This museum houses some of the best mummified pieces anywhere. The museum is small, but the artifacts are of high quality. There is a mummified money, which looks like it died a few years back, but its dated some thousands of years ago. After visiting this place, I can understand... More

Great to see how exactly the mummification procedure was done..... There's only one human mummy but many animals, too. It's all about the process not an exhibit of mummies (who would all look the same anyway!)!

I don't recommend this as there is not much to look at. Its not very expensive but only 1 mummy to see. Much better to go to the luxor museum.

Quite nice to see all tools clear that were used during the mumification process on people and animals. Animals such as goats, ducks, crocodiles and cats etc were sacred to the ancient Egyptians but also part of their daily lives. As well as Humans animal mummies were also on display. Inside the museum as you walk round there is a... More

Very near Luxor temple, this museum is small but explains mummification in an interesting way. Great exhibits.

I was really looking forward to this museum but it is small and poorly done. Only 60 LE ($6 at today's exchange) but still not much worth it. Even the examples of tools and mummies are not well done. I was really hoping for more on the process of mummification than the few drawing on the walls and tool display.

I'm not sure why so many reviewers, both here and in guidebooks, disparage the Mummification Museum. It's hardly massive, but it is filled with high quality objects that aid the viewer to understand the process of mummification and the rituals of death in ancient Egypt. I was thoroughly impressed and would recommend it to travelers on their way to the... More
