Located in the Egyptian city of Luxor. It stands on the corniche, to the north of Luxor Temple, overlooking the River Nile.

The museum is intended to provide  with you with an understanding of the ancient art of mummification. The Ancient Egyptians applied embalming techniques to many species, not only to dead humans. Mummies of cats, fish and crocodiles are on display in this unique museum, where one can also get an idea of the tools used.

Although no photography is allowed, as with most sites for a small monetary incentive the guardians or guides will turn a blind eye (no flash)
