  • The visit is highly recommended. However, most parts do not cite their provenance or are vaguely identified by their general appearance or their similarity to other parts safely identified. A piece is on display at the Museum in Luxor (Egypt) as a gift from the Clos Foundation of the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona.

  • I tend to always go to the Egyptian museums in every city I go. This one is very simple. Considering the price of entry I don't recommend
  • A very nice personal collection, the museum has 3 levels. The audioguide is included in the ticket price (there's students discount as well) and delivers a lot of useful and interesting information. You need to install an app and input the code from the receipt, that's how it works. At the entrance there's a small shop with souvenirs, books, etc
