In Australia we all know about the battles of El Alamein and how it added to the legend of the ANZACs. As an Australian of Austrian descent I had not been exposed to the German side and this Museum covered all sides. As well as items in the museum outside you have examples of vehicles and heavy artillery. As well... More

A dusty town 100km west of Alexandria with a white sandy beach providing a stunning contrast against the deep blue Mediterranean, El Alamein is not the most straightforward of places to reach unless by return taxi (LE400-LE600) or self-drive hire. To many Egyptians it is simply another north coast town and few that we met knew of the existing memorials.... More

If you love history you we like this small museum of the battle of Alamin and how Rommel was stopped by Montgomery's British army during WE2 if one has a relative who passed away at this battle he will be touched by the well kept cemetery

Liked the stories told from different perspectives but it felt disjointed and repetitive at times as the chronology would restart in each of the Nation Rooms (Egyptian perspective, British perspective, German... etc.). Lots of war realia to see.

What a hot and sandy place. I was on montgomery's Guard of Honour when the war graves were officially opened. The weather was scorching hot. So if you visit take lots of water with you

When I first visited some years ago and again in 2006, it felt like nothing had been touched since a random set of artefacts had been thrown together. Not so long ago you could look out of the museum into the landscape in which they fought, then a remote outpost on the edge of the desert. Now it is hidden... More
