We visited the museum with our tour guide Kholoud. It is a fascinating, small museum that gives a very good overview of the history of Egypt through some concise archaeological examples of the region. Having a tour guide is highly recommended.

We were amazed when visiting this museum as it is very good. One floor depicts the muslim and coptic culture, another floor is dedicated to the greco roman culture and the third is of Ancient Egyot. Really interesting.

Good location, good building, but not a replacement for the Greco-Roman museum. A few good artefacts. They should get the one statue of Marc Anthony at the catacombs and put it here.
