  • I did not visit Egypt directly, but it was time to feel the scene. You can feel the mystery and the old atmosphere properly.

  • This was an amazing experience, for a small building, the layout makes it possible to visit each era in a different room. There is even a tomb that you can walk through.  more »

  • Beautiful Ancient Egyptian Museum that has been here for decades. Much has been done to keep this museum relevant. The thousands of ancient Egyptian artifacts, mummies and a tomb replica make this the best such place on the West coast! The gardens are beautiful but I'd recommend picnicking at the nearby San Jose Rose Garden.
  • My family went here yesterday and we had a fantastic time at Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum! We had no problem parking our car since they have a parking space available and the admission is very affordable! There are lots of sights here such as the mummies, artifacts, an Egyptian tomb, miniature displays of Egyptians and building structures in Egypt. Outside, they had outdoor art with a fountain and labyrinth, a very relaxing walking space with the kids. We would definitely come back here if we had a chance.
