About Egyptian Museum

Home to over 120,000 ancient artefacts, mummies, pottery, jewellery, royal riches and treasures, the Egyptian Museum gives a deep insight into the culture and history of Egypt in the heart of its capital. It is packed full of exhibitions revealing the mysteries and stories surrounding Ancient Egypt with factual information and historical evidence, making museum one of the largest in the region. The Egyptian Museum contains important reminders of one of the oldest and most fascinating civilisations that ever existed spread out over 107 halls of displays.

Two floors separate the museum, with the first exhibiting papyrus and coins once used in old times that reveal insights into old trade and communication, and the second focusing on the dynasties of Egypt. Several tombs of Pharaohs are on this floor along with mummified kings and royal figures of the New Kingdom, including the Gold Mask of Tutankhamun made of 11 kilogrammes of solid gold. The museum also has a garden with the tomb and statue of Auguste Mariette along with other important Egyptologists and archaeologists, and the inside holds monuments to the builders of the Great Pyramids. Visitors can spend time learning about ancient dynasties in the Royal Mummies Halls or admiring the Tutankhamun Galleries, and after exploring can buy merchandise at the shop or relax at the café.

Located in the centre of Cairo, visitors can easily find the Egyptian Museum by using the city public transport services such as the metro, which has a stop called Sadat Station close to the museum. Local buses also have routes in that direction, and visitors can ask the driver for “abdelminem-riad”, to find the right stop or travel by car or taxi to the entrance of the museum.

The Egyptian government founded the Egyptian Museum in 1835 to house the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world and educate the public about Ancient Egypt, although they moved it to Cairo later. The collection moved to its final and current destination in Tahrir Square in 1902. In 2011 during the Egyptian Revolution, vandals broke into the museum stealing and destroying objects, many of which officials have since found and restored.
