The Egyptian Museum is not like most museums on Earth. It is old, it is absolutely filthy, and it is dark. Museums in the West tend to be well-lit, thoughtfully spaced, and consist of galleries, whereas the Egyptian Museum has things lying all over the place. Overcrowding of objects is obvious by the unceremonious way that some of them, such as mummies, are displayed. That said, history is everywhere and it is a worthwhile experience - to see the full treasures of Tut is amazing. These pharaohs had some money.
