I would go to the museum. You can easily take a whole day there. It has items from different kingdoms and should give you a quick look at Egypt through the ages. Try browsing the souk and just remember to politely shake you ehad no if you don't really want to buy anything. If you stretch your money a bit you might be able to take a half day trip out to Sakkara.

The souq in Cairo is the Khan el Kalili. If you like to shop, this is the ticket. Bargain, bargain, bargain! You can get everything from t-shirts, to copper plates to gold and silver jewelry - at good prices. The museum is wonderful. The Giza pyramids are the obvious draw in Cairo - you can actually go inside. Also, within a 30 min. taxi ride is the step pyramid at Sakkara. Go to a mosque and to the Gare Anderson house (good example of masherbaya).
