Luxor Museum

This excellent museum is well worth a visit being modern, well-lit and well-labelled. It houses a variety of artefacts from the Old Kingdom up to Mameluke times including a variety of statues including some of Akhenaten and the crocodile-headed god Sobek, the gilded head of a Hathor represented as a cow, a pink-granite head of Amenhotep III. There are also some exhibits of finds from Tutankhamun’s tomb.
