Hurghada Museum is an important ring in Egypt’s museums. This museum covers an area of about 10 thousand square meters, but the gallery is just 3 thousand square meters. In fact, it is housing 2000 pieces from different periods. The ground floor includes all the shops for souvenirs (papyrus, gold, silver, stones, clothes, and perfume)
Some of the main items are those of king Tutankhamun 1330 BC. There are some small figures (we call them Ushabty) with the key of life (Ankh sign). These items are made of wood but covered with gold. The tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered in 1922 by the English Egyptologist Haward Carter.
Hurghada museum is such a great window to watch the beauty of the ancient history of Egypt. The location is just 10 minutes south of Hurghada airport.
Enjoy watching the perfect statue of the seated scribe. He was an important personality and his job put him in a position close to the king. We can just look at the 200-pound note to see him and his future look! This piece is made of granite but the famous one is in Cairo Museum but it is of limestone.
It is a great option to visit Hurghada Museum and to explore some of the Egyptian treasures without travelling to Cairo or Luxor.
