Luxor museum in Luxor City

The Luxor Museum, opened in 1975, is one of the best ancient exhibitions in Egypt. The number of items stored in a modern building is limited, but they are beautifully exhibited. This museum can help you a lot if you are interested in learning different things about the ancient Egyptian history. You will find very old stuff there that you will not find anywhere else in the country.

Admission cost is very high, but worth a visit. The visiting time may be a little limited, so find out when you arrive in Luxor.

Facts

At the entrance to the museum on the right there is a small gift shop. Caught in the main part of the museum, the first two items that attract attention are the red head of Amenhotep III and the head from the grave of the goddess Tutankhamun in red granite.

On the ground floor there are beautiful sculptural works, which depict a double calcite statue of crocodile Lord Sobek and the pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Amenhotep III. It was discovered in 1967 at the bottom of a well-filled water.

A ramp leads to the wonderful antiques, in which items from the grave of Tutankhamun include a boat, arrows and sandles.

One of the main objects of the entire museum is on the top floor: a restored wall of 283 blocks of sandstone, depicted by the wall of the destroyed temple, which was made in Karnak for Amnhotep IV.

There are many other interesting antiquities, including two very beautiful coffins. The museum also presents works of art from the period after the Pharaoh Egypt.

Returning to the ground, on the left is the gallery (exit), where in 1989, under the courtyard of the Luxor Temple, there is a magnificent collection of stone statues.
