Luxor Museum

The Luxor Museum is often compared to the Egyptian Museum in the capital for its great value: despite having a smaller number of exhibits, those on display are treated like real treasures and better presented by more careful captions.

The Luxor Museum is located halfway between the Temples of Luxor and that of Karnak, and has a simple yet elegant structure: a large atrium develops over two levels connected by a ramp, to which is added a side gallery, a more recent extension of the museum.

Among the splendid preserved finds, you can find the imposing golden head of Hathor, the goddess of love from the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, the pink granite sculpture of Amenhotep III, builder of the Temple of Luxor, the calcite statue dedicated to the crocodile-god Sobek, some funerary furnishings of Tutankhamun, including his bed, arrows, sandals, bronze rosettes originally applied on the cloth that covered the sarcophagus, and two small funerary boats; finally you will admire two busts of Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV, successor of Amenhotep III) and a wall rebuilt with sandstone blocks removed from the temple of Akhenaten in Karnak.

In my opinion, I believe a good writer makes content easy to read, and entertains the reader, making comprehension effortless.
