About Luxor Museum, Luxor

When you visit the Luxor Museum, don’t be disappointed by its size; it’s a lot smaller than the museum you’ll see in Cairo, but just as spectacular mind you! Catch the Wall of Akhenaten, which is made up of small blocks similar to those used in the Karnak Temple. It’s displayed as a tableau which is made from recycled rubble. The highlights of the museum can’t be ranked in order of preference or popularity but among the must see exhibits is the statue of Amenhotep III and the retrieved pieces from Tutankhamun’s tomb.

  • A must visit while in Luxor! Probably the best museum in the whole of Egypt. Beats Egyptian Museum of Cairo hands down. Leaving Egyptian Museum leaves you in disbelief of the sad state of the museum and the artifacts. Luxor Museum gives hope that all is not lost. The museum features well curated artifacts, the focus is on quality and not on quantity. It also has clear and sufficient descriptions on the pieces. A big plus is that it is open until lates, 9pm, so you can come here when the other sites have closed up. The museum also has a comprehensive book shop and a library. They have also a small movie theater playing a seven minute introductory piece. Only small minus is that for taking photos you need to pay 50 pounds more or face a fine. They are actually monitoring this by security cameras, you have been warned.

  • The Luxor Museum is an absolute jewels that every visitor to Luxor should visit. The permanent exhibition includes many masterpieces of ancient Egyptian art that are well displayed. For those who have been there before it is always worth visiting again because there are regular new exhibitions presenting new finds made by missions working in the area.

  • One of the better museums in Egypt. Much smaller, but I thought the presentation and items were much better than the Egyptian museum in Cairo. Definitely go if you're in Luxor for the ruins (which are obviously the bigger draw). Open late, after all the sites close.

  • One of the best museums in Egypt.. you could see the perfect art of ancient Egypt and more importantly rhat is very well arranged and the light system is very well. Clean and comfort.. there is no extra mummy tickets or other . Just go there and see the real history of ancient Egypt

  • A beautiful, newer, more compact museum with well chosen, curated artifacts. Very much worth visiting. It’s open in the evenings as well. It has a good bookstore at the end opposite the entrance and a library also.
