Cairo Sights

Imhotep Museum

Updated 09/02/2015

Fodor's Review

One of the best places to really feel the energy of the pyramid-building era, the Imhotep Museum brings together a collection of artifacts and state-of-the-art educational aids to add background to this pivotal era in the development of civilization. Highlights of the seven-room museum, include a set of the blue and turquoise tiles that decorated the interior of Djoser's Pyramid, remains of a seated Djoser, and the feet of Imhotep on a monumental base.
