The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities

Wishlisted by Michelle

The history of ancient Egypt is arguably the richest, deepest, and most interesting of all ancient civilizations. Conveniently placed in the national capital, Cairo-- the same city where Egypt's international airport is, The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities allows tourists to delve into just the tip of this iceberg even if they're only in the country for a layover. It's no Giza or Sphinx, but it's a great exposure to the Egyptian history's rabbit hole. The museum holds the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts. In one visit, tourists will be exposed to burial rituals, learn about the first Egyptian King Narmer, discover the controversial life and death of Queen Hatshepsut, see the treasures of the famous King Tut, and, for those looking for a more thrilling adventure, visit the Mummy exhibit at night (don't worry, it's also open in the morning). Walking through the front door already feels like an journey on it's own when you see the ancient king guards out front, and step into a realm that you've only read in books or seen from Brendan Fraser films. Tourists can come back as much as they can, and they always notice and learn something different. A whole new experience awaits for every turn.
