Visiting The Egyptian Museum in Cairo

I am not a person who cares to visit museums but I decided to check out the Egyptian Museum since it came highly recommended by my hosts at the guesthouse. Honestly I almost changed my mind at the last minute but I couldn't let my host down since he had arranged to accompany me and show me around the museum. He studied Egyptology so I knew I was in good hands.

I am happy to report that I actually enjoyed the museum more than I thought I would! Could be because I had someone explaining things to me about the significance of the incredible pieaces I saw, with so much passion. Yes, there are written explanations but they lack that human touch to make things more interesting.

I would definitely recommend checking this museum out. It's located in downtown Cairo and is open daily from 9 to 5, the entry ticket for adults is $8 per person which is about 75 Egyptian pounds. 

That's it folks, just a short post showing my appreciation of the Egyptian Museum.
