Concierge.com's insider take:
While it's much smaller than the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Luxor's version contains ancient masterpieces including a beautiful gold Hathor cow's head sculpture, hunting chariot and other items from King Tut's tomb, the newly returned mummy of the Pharaoh Ramses I, and a collection of statues discovered buried under Luxor Temple in 1989. An annex, opened in 2003, is dedicated to the military history of ancient Thebes.
Open daily October through April 9 am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 9 pm, and May through September 9 am to 1 pm and 5 pm to 10 pm.
