  Egyptology and Egyptologists
The science of Egyptology is not exclusive to Egyptologists, because there are other professions that are needed in the study of ancient Egypt.
For example, Egyptology does not really encompass the study of Egypt before the existence of mankind, and usually does not attempt to study Egypt prior to about 5,000 BC, nor is it interested in the period of time after the Arab conquest.
Basically, that is because many people enjoy studying Egyptology, and even doing research on it, but they lack a formal education in the topic and they do not earn their living studying the science.

In addition to the exhibitions in the Daily Life Gallery and the Funerary Gallery, the entrance hall of the Museum displays monumental stone sculpture from the temples of ancient Bubastis (modern Tell Basta) in the Nile Delta.
In return, the Museum received a share of the artefacts that were found (although this practice was gradually stopped once Egypt became an independent republic in 1952).
Because the artefacts were discovered in controlled excavations, where archaeologists record and keep everything they find, the Egyptology collection contains a wide variety of objects which were unearthed exactly where they had been left by the ancient Egyptians.
