National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat - Min of Tourism & Antiquities
CAIRO – 31 March 2021: As the inauguration of the Central Exhibition Hall at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat opens on April 3 in line with the Pharaohs’ Golden Parade, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities will launch, on Wednesday, the official page of the museum and an online platform for booking tickets.
CEO of the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization Ahmed Ghoneim said that the page provides an overview of the museum, its archaeological importance and its uniqueness among the world's museums at the local, regional and international levels, as it is among the very few museums that display the various aspects of Egyptian civilization throughout the ages since the pre-era to the modern times.
He added that the page also showcases a number of the most important archaeological holdings displayed in the museum that explain different eras, indicating that the visitor of the page can wander the center of the museum, which is an integrated cultural beacon that varies between museum exhibition halls, antiquities restoration centers, and entertainment hubs that include restaurants, cafeterias and bazaars to sell antique replicas.
The visitor can also, through that page, electronically reserve tickets to enter the museum, as a part of the Ministry's plan to facilitate the reservation process for visitors.
It is worth noting that the museum is scheduled to receive on April 3 the royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum at Tahrir, in a majestic parade befitting the grandeur of our ancestors.
There are 22 royal mummies dating back to the 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th dynasties, including 18 mummies of kings and 4 mummies of queens, among them the mummy of King Ramses II, King Seqnen Ra Taa, King Tuthmosis III, King Seti I, Queen Hatshepsut, Queen Meritamun, wife of King Amenhotep I, and Queen Ahmose Nefertari.
