The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, known commonly as the Egyptian Museum or Museum of Cairo, in Cairo, Egypt, is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities.
Officially called the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, downtown Cairo’s star attraction feels more like the warehouse of Indiana Jones than a traditional museum. Like the rest of Egypt, the organization may be a bit chaotic but it’s worth it to spend at least half a day wandering the museum’s two main floors. The highlight of the Pharonic treasures here are without a doubt the mummies of famous Egyptian Pharaohs. Queen Hatshepsut is the most recently discovered mummy here, while the remains of King Tutankhamen’s tomb is the most visited attraction; check out the the 24-pound gold mask of King Tut’s face.
