It a very neat and well organised museum. There is almost no crowd so everything can be seen in peace. They kept a mummy too and the sight of it gave us goosebumps. The outer area and washrooms are neat and clean.

Not usually a museum kind of guy, but the museums in Egypt are amazing.I went to every museum that I could. They all have different items to look at and they are uncovering new items all of the time at different dig sites. So yes, go to the museums!

This is a great place to start your tour of the Sakkara area. The museum houses the oldest complete Royal Mummy from 2292 BCE. Displayed are many tools, vases and figurines. Some are unique and not in the Egyptian Museum.

Very well-done regional museum, with a focus on area finds as well as everyone's favorite architect, Imhotep. Good introduction to the area before you begin your explorations for the day.

This museum is at the Saqqara site and is only about 5 rooms but has some exquisite exhibits. The tiled facade from Djoser's pyramid, several scribe statues of Imhotep and his medical instruments. Tools used in building the pyramids and sarcophagi. There is also a short video narrated by Omar Shariff that goes into Saqqara that is worth watching as well. Finally, it has the cleanest bathrooms in the site.
