However, some of the real attractions include a statue of Tuthmosis III (circa 1436 BC) on the first floor, and 283 sandstone blocks arranged as a wall from the ninth pylon of the Karnak Temple.

The Mummification Museum in Luxor is the best place to learn about the most powerful secrets of the pharaohs. It is set in an underground hall on the Nile, The museum's features displays of both human and animal mummies. However, there are also displays of tools used in the mummification process, as well as artifacts of items buried along with the mummies for use in the afterlife. Almost anything one ever wanted to know about mummification can be learned here, including the mummification process itself. There is a statue of Anubis, the jackal-god who presided over the dead, at the entrance to the museum.

Itinerary

early pick up from your hotel by A/C coach to visit the centrally located Luxor Museum which overlooks the west bank of the River Nile. Inaugurated in 1975, the museum is housed in a small, purpose-built building. While offering fewer artifacts than the country's main collections in Cairo, the museum has better multilingual labeling on its displays. Here you can see grave goods from the tomb of Tutankhamen and a collection of 26 exceptionally well preserved New Kingdom statues that were found buried in a cache in nearby Luxor Temple in 1989.
continue your tour to visit the mummification museum Here you can learn all kinds of fascinating facts about the ancient art of mummification. These techniques were used on all kinds of animals, as well as humans, hence a number of mummified cats, fish and crocodiles on display in this unique museum. back to your hotel
