Best Egyptian museum this side of... well, Egypt! I was here once many years ago, and while age (and likely lack of publicity) has somewhat take a toll, it's still an amazing educational trip! Get a taste of the "real" Egypt, if you can't make the trip to Gaza! (They won't let you into Tut's tomb in Egypt most times either!)
Great collection of Egyptian artifacts. Very interesting and great for all ages. The garden was also very nice, and I'd highly recommend you give yourself enough time to see everything. It is much larger than it looks when you first enter. The building needs some renovations, but don't let that detour you from the wonderful collection.
