Egyptian Museum

There are many Egypt ancient antiques in the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. But it was a really a different experience to see all these historical treasures in the country where they were originated.

I was finally able to visit Egyptian Museum in Cario for real. Truth be told, the museum is a bit run down than what I was expecting. But I was thrilled to see everything it hosts, especially the mummies of ancient Pharos and Queens.

 In 2020 the museum is due to be superseded by the new Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza. So I made it just in time before the new transformation.

Here are some photos of the musuem.
