Although not too large, it had many fabulous treasures of ancient Egypt. It is a gorgeous place and things are put together very well. So glad we got to visit.

I agree with the reviewer who said it’s a smaller scale Cairo Museum. If you don’t know much about the history of Alexandria, it’s an interesting stop, and I recommend it. It’s not crowded, so you have plenty of room to move around even though...More

This place has many of the same type of things as the Egyptian Museum in a much smaller scale. Unlike the Egyptian Museum, this place has proper lighting and English descriptions of all items. Where the Egyptian Museum is still in the 1920’s, this place...More
