Mummification Museum Reviews & Ratings
Steep at 100 LE but really nice and informative and charming... A bit on the small size... Evening it's open from 5 - 8.45pm. basement along the Corniche
How long did the mummification process take? What was involved in the process? How many surgeons would attend? What were the religious rites to the process? These questions and more will NOT be answered by this museum. For 100 L.E you get a single room. In this room is a small story about what happened AFTER mummification. There is a mummy. A mummified monkey. Some mummified fish and a crocodile. A few tools. And that's pretty much it. The highlight of the room was the mummified security guard. Or perhaps he was just sleeping. I learned nothing in this museum, which is really disappointing. It doesn't actually tell you anything about the process of mummification, and is simply just a room with artifacts rejected by Cairo and Luxor museums. A real missed opportunity and certainly not worth the entry fee. I gave it an extra star because it had air-conditioning and it gave me the chance to get out of the sun. Otherwise it would only have 1 star. An embarrassing excuse for a museum. I'm off to Wikipedia to learn all the things this museum didn't bother to teach me about mummification.
Worth visiting this museum. It gives information about how the mummification was done in more than 4,000 years ago in Egypt. All about Ramses II, animals, etc. This is for those who has interest in history. Suggested to read history before visit. Luxor where this museum is located, it is beautiful city, river Nile flowing in the middle of the city, dividing into east and west. At That time East was considered life due to sun rises that's why residence was here. Similarly, since west was considered as sign of end of life due sun set.
Mummification Museum in luxor good place to visit with east bank tour
This Museum its amazing and should be bigger. Mummification process deserve more space and visits. The work and the ceremony around a mummy was not only very interesting as medicine process also about religious faith. The Museum is on Nile Corniche, very easy and near to go from Luxor Temple.
