The museum was pretty overwhelming. It's amazing how many artifacts were there, and how many they have that aren't even on display. We ended up buying a video from the gift shop so that we could look at everything again. The display of King Tutankhamen's tomb artifacts was especially impressive. I stood for a few minutes just looking at the funeral mask. I've seen pictures of it a hundred times, but it was amazing seeing it in person. The babies didn't think it was that impressive; they fell asleep halfway through the museum.
After that, our tour took us to a papyrus factory where they showed us how papyrus paper is made. It was very interesting, and we ended up buying a papyrus with the tree of life painted on it.
It was a long, full day, and we were exhausted after the early morning wake-up, so we ordered room service for dinner and went to bed early! :)
