  • Loving and knowing Egypt, attracted by the publicity (it very well done!) it is with pleasure and impatience that I went to the parc de la Villette. And here's how to tell you! a poorly organized circuit and apart from 1 to 2 beautiful pieces nothing that could be expected! on the other hand, an entire room was dedicated to Carter! but nothing of the magnificent sarcophagi and busts encountered at the Cairo museum!! the precious objects were reduced to a few small pieces! ah let's not forget the book of the exhibition! like the rest bad papers few photos and let's end with the vile copy of the bust of the pharaoh in the shop! not to mention the shameful prices charged on small objects that otherwise sold very little! His mummy must have shuddered! there's still time for you not to go! a sad and angry Egyptian fan

  • Whoever loves Egypt will be a little disappointed because the exhibition is really very targeted Lacks a reproduction of the golden funeral mask (one imagines that we can not see the real ) Many works that came out of Egypt for the first time To complete with a visit to the Louvre
