After riding camels and climbing pyramids, we took a taxi to the Egyptian Museum. There, we saw all sorts of things that were dug up from more than 2000 years ago! There were lots of sarcophaguses in many different colors and sizes. We looked at mummies of Egyptian Pharaohs and queens in the Royal mummies room. Some of them had glass eyes and some still had hair. The 'King Tutankhamen Room' was extremely fascinating! All the things that were buried with him were on display...except the stuff that tomb robbers stole. Everything in the room was made of gold and other beautiful minerals. It was a sight to see!
