    Quite possibly one of the most hidden Egyptology gems out there, right in your backyard. Don't miss the emergency stairwell -- some of the best stuff is hidden there!

    Though some of the exhibits are badly lit, i really liked this cosy museum. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, good to talk to.
