  • This is a cool museum that I discovered as a friend told me about it. It's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, near a Botanical Garden. The outside is nicely lined with statues, looks quite regal. They have a garden as well. A lot of history and great artifacts. It was surprisingly big. You can easily spend a couple of hours. There was a lot information, which was overwhelming, but overall a nice experience.

  • A must go to! My family and I loved it. You definitely have to visit more than once. The staff was very nice and helpful.

  • I have kind of a thing... a fascination thing with death and the afterlife so until I experience it first hand 🤔this place satisfied my curiosity. Neat place to learn history... another fascination.

  • I fell in love with this museum the moment I went in. I couldn't believe that the mummies there were real. I especially loved going down to where it seemed like we were inside a pyramid or a cave. It was so beautiful and there was so much to learn. My family loved it. Even my 6 year old son. I highly recommend this place and would like to return soon.

  • I've loved this museum since my first time going 25 years ago. It doesn't have the most elaborate displays, but for only being $9, it scratches the itch for an afternoon filled with ancient history. That being said, I think my biggest complaint is the lack of decorum from the guests that come in. I spent a couple hours there and it was full of screaming children that were running around. I absolutely cannot believe that these parents nowadays think that everyone in the world should have to listen to their children's tantrums. This isn't a children's museum. It's not full of bubbles and hands-on inventions like the Discovery Museum. None of the displays can be understood by children under 5 (i.e. you need to know how to read). So why are these young and unruly children allowed to ruin the experience of people who want to learn? Parents: Learn some manners. If your kid starts crying/screaming/talking loudly/running around in a quiet museum, they should be taken outside immediately; not after 10 minutes of trying to rectify the behavior. Better yet, don't bring kids under 5 here, period. Trust me, it's no fun for them or the people who have to listen to them! Museum employees: You need to lay down some better boundaries with these disrespectful parents.
