If you have not visited any other site that displays mummies, or if you have not yet seen the mummy of an animal, this small museum might be of interest. Only a cursory knowledge of the process can be gleaned, however, and you will find yourself wanting to see more. At the time of out visit, the mummy of Seti I was housed in the Luxor Museum, right across the street. Though we did not have the opportunity to see him, if you are in the area and have another hour to spare, you might want to see how the royal mummies were prepared and how well they have been preserved. For an even better example of the artistry of the ancient embalmers, visit the Egyptian Museum.
