Luxor Museum

Luxor Museum is an archaeological museum in Luxor, Egypt. The museum was opened in 1975 and contains a collection of artworks dating from the Predynastic Period right through to the Islamic era. Many of the free-standing granite statues depict kings, queens, and high-status officials who left their images in the Theban temples. Tutankhamun is well-represented by some of the objects from his tomb in the Valley of the Kings which are not currently on display in the Cairo Museum. There are exhibits of funerary stelae, offering tables, papyri, tomb furniture, a cartonage mummy-case and many small statuettes and shabtis. In glass cases in the centre of the upper floor are smaller objects such as jewellery, funerary and ritual items and artefacts from daily life. (exploreluxor)
