After doing other museums in Egypt, you can generally find mummies that are better in Cairo and crocodile mummies better for free if you enter Kom Ombo crocodile museum at the end of the temple. more »
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.
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.
