Howard Carter, the British archaeologist who discovered King Tutankhamun’s tomb, lived in this house while he was carrying out his excavations in the Valley of the Kings. Lots of original furniture and items remain in the house from the 1920s, including Carter’s traveling trunk, fly whisk, telephone and phonograph. A young lady showed us around, then asked if we wanted to see a movie. This turned out to be a hologram of "Howard Carter." He paced about the room and perched on the edge of his desk as he related the story of King Tut’s tomb. Loved it!

Even before the Revolution , the restoration of the house was causing by Dr. Hawass! Do not be confused by guides who offer a home on a plateau than that of Howard Carter. It is wrong. To the house of H. Carter, it was now green with vegetation, behind it is a is a cafe. Inside the house there was done everything that was possible, it is equipped with furniture from the time of Carter. Many drawings, reports by H. Carter are issued . The house provides a excellent impression of how the famous archaeologist lived. Entrance: 20 EL
