All about the trip
Begin your day with a private pick-up from your hotel in Luxor by our Egyptologist guide who will accompany you through Luxor Museum and Mummification Museum.
Your first stop will be the Luxor Museum standing on the corniche, overlooking the west bank of the River Nile, in the central part of the city. Inaugurated in 1975, the museum is housed in a small, purpose-built building. The range of artifacts on display is far more restricted than the country’s main collections in the Museum of Antiquities in Cairo; this was, however, deliberate, since the museum prides itself on the quality of the pieces it has, the uncluttered way in which they are displayed, and the clear multilingual labeling used.
Then you will be transferred to the Mummification Museum. The museum stands on the corniche, in front of the Mina Palace Hotel and north of Luxor Temple, overlooking the River Nile. The museum is intended to provide visitors with an understanding of the ancient art of mummification. The Ancient Egyptians applied embalming techniques to many species, not only to dead humans. Mummies of cats, fish, and crocodiles are on display in this unique museum, where one can also get an idea of the tools used.
At the end of the tour, you will be returned back to your hotel in Luxor.What Wikipedia says about Luxor Museum
