Tourist Facilities

Tickets for entrance to the tombs are purchased from a government ticket office that lies at the beginning of the asphalt road that runs from the eastern edge of the village of Et-Till out to the North Tombs. Beside the ticket office is a clean and pleasant tourist cafeteria and gift shop, with toilets.

A second rest-house for visitors has been built on the desert below the South Tombs but is currently not in use.

A site museum is under construction on the quay on the north side of the ferry landing-stage at Et-Till. It is intended to illustrate the nature of the ancient city of Amarna and of the way of life of the people who lived there.
