Egyptian Museum

Here are the pictures from the egyptian museum. Sorry, they are not that great, lighting is terrible, it is forbidden to use the flash and tripods, there are reflections on the windows everywhere as the glasses are not mat.
The museum was great buyt unfortunately suffers from a lack of information about all artifacts and statues. They are just lying there without any historical note.

I also noted some incoherences between two information notes but I would need to go deeper in an Egyptian book to find about this.
