Luxor Museum of Ancient Egyptian Art

Recommended
With collections originating from digs at Thebes, Luxor, Karnak and Deir el-Bahri, the museum provides a comprehensive overview of the Middle and New Kingdoms. The realism of the features and attitudes of the statues of Amenophis III, Thutmosis III and Rameses III shows the evolution of Egyptian statuary from classicism to expressionism. Key pieces include the famous talatat walls of Aton Temple, illustrating the King's life, and funerary objects from Tutankhamun's tomb.
