Amazing exhibits!
The museum and its exhibits were amazing. We unfortunately could not get into the Ramses exhibit but still had a educationally good time.

We enjoy all exhibits...
We enjoy all exhibits especially Ramesse as it reminded us being back in the Valley of the Kings. I would recommend this exhibit to others to see for themselves
