Inaugurated in 1975, the museum is housed in a small, purpose-built building. It has a range of artefacts on display with a clear multilingual labelling used for grave relics from the tomb of Tutankhamen and a collection of 26 well preserved New Kingdom statues. You will also come across royal mummies of two pharaohs, Ahmose I and Ramesses I.
Mummification Museum displays both human and animal mummies. You will also come across tools used in the mummification process, as well as items buried along with the mummies for use in the afterlife.
After panning through Museums, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Luxor.
