Sharm El Sheikh Museum added an advantage to the city, especially for non-Egyptian tourists, who mostly travel to enjoy the beach only and do not have time to visit and learn about the ancient Egyptian heritage, as it saved the efforts of time, distance, and cost, and made it possible to learn about the Egyptian heritage and pharaonic statues, so it became an attractive source of tourism in Sharm El-Sheikh in a greater way than before.

In addition to the statue of “Ukhhotep” or as he was known as (Women’s advocate), the ruler of El Quseyya, which is one of the regions of Asyut, when his tomb was discovered, drawings and inscriptions for women only were found, he married many women to give birth to a male to inherit the throne after him, but he fathered only girls, therefore he appointed only women in all the jobs that used to occupy his palace, as a prelude to the general public that whoever will inherit power after him is one of his daughters, and to prove that women are capable of performing any job a man can perform. There is also a statue of King Horemheb, commander of the army during the reign of Akhenaten, and his wife, Queen Mut Nejmet, and 10 artifacts belonging to King Tutankhamun before they were displayed in the Grand Egyptian Museum.
