The gorgeous Luxor Museum is located on the East Bank of the Nile River in Luxor, which it's a good chance to visit it onboard a luxury Nile river cruise and to be more specific, it is exactly between Karnak Temple in the North and Luxor Temple in the South. It is an archeological site that contains a collection of antiques that date back to the Mamluk period of the Old Kingdom. It was designed to face the Nile and it is about 55 meters long and 29 meters wide. It was opened in 1975 and it contains a collection of restricted artifacts that it is in the Egyptian Museum, however, the Museum is so proud of its collection and the quality of its antiques.
At the beginning of the opening of the museum in 1975, there weren’t much to show inside the museum but the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiques decided to increase the number of the antiques inside the museum to make it a tourist attraction in the beautiful city of Luxor. There is a big garden on the site of the museum, which includes many beautiful artifacts and many sculptures from the pharaohs' era. After crossing the large glass doors, you will find yourself in the big hall, which consists of two levels with spiral corridors linking the levels together. These spiral corridors give the museum a dynamic atmosphere different from other old traditional museums. Inside the first floor of the museum, there are wonderful Egyptian sculptures that include a terrific statue of Sobek, the crocodile God, which was located in Kom Ombo Temple protecting a figure of Amenhotep III. There are also some colorful coffins and the remaining of the walls of the temple of Amenhotep IV. Your Egypt tours should include a visit to the Luxor Museum and other Luxor tourist attractions.
