On this visit, we'll see the Luxor Museum and the Museum of Mummification, the two most important and most visited museums in Egypt after the Cairo Egyptian Museum.
Having picked you up at your hotel, or the boat where you're staying, we'll make our way to the Luxor Museum, the second most visited museum in the country, only beaten by the Cairo Egyptian Museum.
This museum contains pieces which were excavated in the many historically relevant places in the region, such as the Luxor and Karnak temples. Jewels, ceramics, statues and stone tablets form part of the extensive collection. Some of the masterworks in the museum are objects belonging to Tutankhamun, the statue of Thutmose III and the Karnak temple mural.
Our next stop will be the Mummification Museum, protected by the god Anubis and her Jackal shaped head. Inaugurated in 1997, this museum explains the 70-day mummification process and will explain to you the strange rite, such as the origin of the instruments, or the social exclusion suffered by those who worked on the bodies.
After this interesting history lesson, we'll take you back to your hotel.
