CAIRO – 24 February 2022: Under the title "Five wonderful Egyptian Museums to Add to Your List of Tourist Experiences”, Life Guardian published a report highlighting five of the most famous Egyptian museums, namely the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, the Grand Egyptian Museum, the Mummification Museum in Luxor, the Luxor Museum, and the Museum of Islamic Art in Bab Al-Khalq in Cairo.
The report pointed out that throughout the twentieth century, the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir was one of the most important museums to visit, because it displays a huge collection of artifacts, including the mask of the golden king Tutankhamun and the archaeological artifacts that were found inside his tomb discovered by archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922, which will be the icon of the Grand Egyptian Museum when it officially opens.
Moreover, the report added that the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, since its first opening in 1902, has represented the world's exclusive display of ancient Egyptian artifacts, as the museum abounds with a huge variety of relics exceeding 120,000 pieces.
In addition, the report also shed light on the Grand Egyptian Museum, which will display the entire collection of King Tutankhamun for the first time all in one place. The Grand Egyptian Museum, once completed, will be the biggest museum in the world dedicated to a single civilization.
Also, the report reviewed the Mummification Museum located on the Corniche Street in Luxor, explaining that although it houses a small group of exhibits, it includes a distinctive collection that includes many means and tools that were used in the mummification process during the ancient Egyptian era, in addition to fascinating illustrations.
The fourth museum mentioned by the report is the Luxor Museum, which is located along the Nile River next to the Luxor Temple. The museum displays a life-size statue of Amenhotep III and the mummies of Ramses I and Ahmose I.
Finally, the report also referred to the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo, explaining that it contains the world's largest collection of Islamic antiques and art from all over the Islamic world.
