Kom Ushim (Karanis) Museum is located 30 Km north of the city of El-Fayoum. It provides the visitor with a glimpse into the everyday Greco-Roman life. The small museum houses some of the items found in the ruins of ancient Karanis. At the museum, jewelry, pottery works, females heads (from Alexandria), and fine glassware vessels among other objects belonging to different eras are exhibited. A great deal of the mummies discovered at the rich archeological area of Karanis had the portrait of the deceased painted on them.
