Many artifacts, busts, and figurines featuring Khafre, Khufu, Psusennes I, Akhenaten, Menkaure, and Tutankhamun...The museum is a really excellent complement to all the other sites scattered around the upper and lower Egypt, that are still very prime sites for tourists...The gardens surrounding the museum building hols memorials for great egyptologists.
