CAIRO - 18 March 2020: The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities continues to transfer artifacts from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the Sharm El-Sheikh Museum, scheduled to officially open during the upcoming Sinai Liberation celebrations on April 25.
Director General of the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Sabah Abdel Razek clarified that transferring artifacts to the Grand Egyptian Museum, Sharm El-Sheikh Museum and the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization is ongoing using the latest scientific methods in order to protect the artifacts from any damages.
Abdel Razek exposed that 300 artifacts have been transferred successfully to the Sharm El-Sheikh Museum.
Head of the Central Department for Engineering Affairs, Antiquities and Museum Projects Waad Abul Ela stated that the civil protection equipment is yet to be installed in the museum, while all development work has already been completed.
Furthermore, Abul Ela noted that works in the museum has been resumed since September 2018, after a hiatus of about 8 years, precisely in the aftermath of the January 2011 revolution, due to the lack of the necessary funds.
Advisor to the Minister of Antiquities for Museum Display Mahmoud Mabrouk mentioned in previous statements that the exhibition scenario in the Sharm El-Sheikh Museum will illustrate the daily life of the ancient Egyptian during the New Kingdom, where the displayed artifacts portray the civilized life the ancient Egyptians were experiencing during that era.
Also, the museum’s display scenario illustrates the ancient Egyptian’s interest with the wildlife, revealing how the ancient Egyptians cared about animals, birds, reptiles and insects in terms of raising, sanctifying, domesticating and treating them.
