The basics

Close to top attractions on the East Bank of the Nile, Luxor Museum is the city’s most significant museum and among the top museums in the country. Good signage makes it a great place to learn more about ancient history here, and the relics on display help make Luxor’s ancient sites even more vivid.

Guided tours are an option that can help unearth the significant finds among the extensive collection, whether you’re visiting as part of a longer tour or just hiring a guide to explore the museum itself.

Great Focused Pieces
Gabrielle_E, Oct 2020
Luxor Museum and Mummification Museum Private Half-Day Tour
Guide H did a great job focusing on the important pieces in each museum. We learned a lot about specific statues. I'd be nice to have a bit more time at each room of Luxor Museum to explore the items we didn't focus on.
Nice tour of 2 museums

Museum of Luxor and Mummification Museum 4 hours Tour
This is a nice tour to see the excavation of Luxor and the mummies found. The two museums aren’t very big, so you can easily do this tour in 2-3 hours. Ekran was a very nice guide and explained the history very well. We would recommend this tour if you want to leave your hotel and see some history indoors (to stay away from the heat & sun).
Interesting two hours

Luxor Museum and Mummification Museum Private Day Tour
I had a few hours to kill before leaving Luxor and these two museums were a nice way to spend a couple of hours. The museum are small but both very interesting, both have good signs inside explaining things so you don’t necessarily need a guide but I learned a lot more having Ahmed form Tour Egypt Club with me. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. If you are interested they would also take you to the bazaar, I had already done my shopping so I didn’t but others might be interested in adding this opportunity.

How to get there

The Luxor Museum is located on the Nile Corniche where it intersects with Al Mathan. Taxis and horse-drawn carriages are plentiful on-site, but it’s important to negotiate a price with the driver before setting out. If you’re visiting Luxor Temple, the Luxor Museum is just less than a mile (1.5 kilometers) away; it’s a pleasant walk that follows the Nile Corniche.
