Go to the Egyptian Museum in the morning to avoid crowds

  • The best time to go to avoid crowds is right after museum opening (9am) until noon
  • The museum gets more crowded in the afternoon, as group tours start to show up en masse (Chinese and European tour groups mainly)
  • However, to put it in perspective, I went in the afternoon, but the crowd wasn't THAT bad. Egyptian tourism is still down compared to its peak many years ago I think. Even though the Egyptian Museum is one of the top attractions in Cairo it's nowhere near as crowded as some of the places I've been to in Europe
