    Happy Deepavali to you and yours!

  5. These excavations have unearthed some of the most incredible finds on the planet. Deciding with room packed with history to explore would, indeed, be a challenge. 🙂

  6. Exquisite. What little Egyptian stuff we get in out town is usually well attended.

    It is amazing that ancient motifs look so modern, more modern and newer!! I wonder what ancient artists created these charming patterns.
    Best wishes,

    This is a very interesting museum. Yes I can believe that this is something you cannot do in one day! These ceilings are so beautiful.
    Have a great week.

    You have so beautifully documented these superb exhibits. The museum truly is a font of knowledge and art.

    That's amazing that there are still Egyptian collections on display. It seems to me that I have heard that all countries have returned their collections to the museum in Cairo. But probably I am wrong.

    Egyptian mummies are always fascinating! Until, now I've seen the largest collection in the British Museum and hope to visit this one sometime:)

  22. This is really beautiful and fascinating as well. It would be wonderful to be there, but since I am unlikely ever to get to visit, thank you very much for showing it to us. I always like the audio guides when we go to museums or historical sites — it really does help I agree!

  23. Great pictures! You seem to be going all around Europe. Keep globetrotting.

    I love visiting museums, thanks for having proposed !!!!!

  25. There is a wonderful immediacy about Egyptian art that makes it less ancient and more fun than a lot of other old stuff.

  26. Egyptian art is always so fascinating!
