Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum was a mad-house. Picture hundreds of groups of people. Each group has at least 1 tour leader who is trying to describe the exhibits (in several languages), and they need to out-shout the other guides so they can be heard. These groups are going in all different directions, as there is no logical order to the place. Yes, King Tut's exhibit is there; but I was glad I had seen it in Boston where it was much more civilized. As in all museums, you are not allowed to use a flash on your camera. Most all displays were behind glass, so our photos are not as clear as I would like.
