Bahariya Museum of the Golden Mummies, Egypt

When I got to the Bahariya Museum of the Golden Mummies, it was closed. A person in charge came and opened the main door soon. There were no visitors other than us. There were not so many exhibitions.

The oasis of Bahariya has become famous in recent years for the astonishing discovery of a Roman Period necropolis now known to the world as the Valley of the Golden Mummies.                (The photos below are the golden mummy.)

There are supposed to be 10,000 tombs in all.

No Photos could be taken inside. So, these photos are from the internet.
