  • Wonderful place for a family outing, specially for kids. Ticket 0-2 years free, 5-12 years 5 dhs and adults 10 dhs. For elderly people they allow one person free entry with them. The whole place can be viewed in 1½ hour. At the end of the tour the kids get to paint an earthen pot for free and the adults can paint a tile. There is also a souvenir shop. The bathrooms are really clean. It closes at 8 pm so keep around 30-40 minutes for pottery painting. Very friendly staff.
  • What a beautiful museum. It's now my daughter's favorite spot on the planet. There are numerous enjoyable activities for children. The main attraction is "The Dig," where children can dress up as archaeologists and search for artifacts in the sand (these pieces are actual replicas of objects in the museum!) Isn't it amazing? Furthermore, there are interactive displays and numerous activities available throughout the exhibitions, ranging from ceramic restoration to coloring hieroglyphs to puzzles or playing hand shadow on the wall. Highly recommend it.
