After seeing all the amazing sites on our tour, our last stop was at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. Our guide took us on a 2 hour tour and then left us to wander for another hour or so. There is simply too much to see and we found it exhausting. The guided tour is best, and he saved the King Tut artifacts for the end. They are exquisite with all the gold and ivory and the furniture is fascinating. But we found the presentation a bit bleak - it was difficult to decide what was more or less important. Everything seemed to be given the same emphasis. Or maybe we had taken in all our brains could take! It was time to go home.
