The Luxor Museum

The Luxor Museum

The Luxor Museum is a small, but very well curated archeological museum.

The Luxor Museum is an archaeological museum located in the city of Luxor, Egypt, on the east bank of the Nile River. It was opened in 1975 and houses a collection of artifacts from the ancient city of Thebes and the surrounding area. It suffers a little through the newly built Grand Egyptian Museum and the Museum of the Egyptian Civilization in Kairo. 

The collection of artifacts from the tomb of the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Tutankhamun, which was discovered in 1922 by the British archaeologist Howard Carter has been brought to the new museum on the Gizah plateu where all the finds of Tutankhamuns tomb will be displayed together for the first time in history.

But nevertheless, the museum's collection includes a wide range of items, including statues, reliefs, pottery, jewelry, and other artifacts from ancient Egyptian civilization. Many of the items on display were found in the nearby temples and tombs of Luxor and the surrounding area, such as the Temple of Karnak, the Valley of the Kings, and the Valley of the Queens.

Other notable exhibits include a collection of statues of the god Amun, a beautiful relief from the tomb of Amenhotep III, and several pieces of jewelry from the tomb of the pharaohs. The museum also has a number of interactive displays and multimedia exhibits that help visitors learn more about ancient Egyptian history and culture.

Despite the fact that many of the museums aftifacts were brought to Cairo, the Luxor Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in ancient Egyptian history and archaeology. Its collection is world-class and provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives and beliefs of one of the world's greatest civilizations.
