One of the most popular tourist attractions in Cairo is the Egyptian Museum, situated in the Tahirr Square.

See huge statues of kings, gods and goddesses on the ground floor, while the upper floor houses small statues, jewels and Tutankhamen treasures.
It is the largest Egyptian antiques museum in the world and definitely the most interesting landmark in Cairo. Also see artefacts from the tombs of kings and members of the royal families of the Middle Kingdom found at Dahshur in 1894.
In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Cairo in an air-conditioned coach. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Egyptian Museum situated in the Tahirr Square in Cairo. The museum was first built in Boulak, but in 1891, it was moved to Giza Palace of ‘Ismail Pasha’ which housed the antiques that were later moved to the present building.
There are 107 halls in the museum. At the ground floor there are huge statues. The upper floor houses small statues, jewels and Tutankhamen treasures. It is the largest Egyptian antiques museum in the world and houses about 250,000 antique pieces covering the whole history of ancient Egypt, which extends over the past five thousand years. The Egyptian Museum comprises many sections arranged in chronological order.
After panning through a range of antiques in the museum, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Cairo.
