Highlights of the Egyptian Museum

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

The ideal souvenir or gift from a visit to the great storehouse of antiquity.

Cairo's Egyptian Museum, one of the greatest storehouses of ancient art and artifacts in the world, is at the top of the agenda for millions of visitors to Egypt every year. People come to see the fabulous gold treasures of King Tutankhamun, the monumental royal statuary, the elaborately painted coffins and funerary masks, the model houses, ships, and armies, the tools, furnishings, and games of everyday life, and all the other paraphernalia of three thousand years of ancient Egyptian civilization.
