This morning we visit the Grand Egyptian Museum, a vast 490,000 sq.m complex which contains an incredible array of relics and antiquities from almost every period of ancient Egyptian history. Arguably the most famous exhibit is the spectacular funerary mask of King Tutankhamun. Then we head over to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization to see the mummies of ancient Egyptian pharaohs on display in the Royal Mummies' Hall. Some of the mummies you will see are so well preserved, they still have thick locks of hair, visible finger nails! After the museums there's time to relax back at the hotel before we board the night train to Aswan this evening.
