The Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum was designed by the French architect Marcel Dourgnon and built-in 1901; however, the first initiatives were done by Egypt's viceroy Muhammad Ali Pasha in the 1800s. He first issued a decree to ban the export of antiquities to other countries, and then he allocated a house near El-Ezbekia Garden and laid the foundations of the museum. Until the official opening on the 15th of November 1902 it replace a few times and expanded its collection over the long decades finally in March 2019 the museum opened for public visits.

 In 2011, during the Egyptian Revolution, the museum had two mummies and other artifacts damaged but restored and redisplayed. With the two statues of King Tutankhamun made of cedar wood and covered with gold, a statue of King Akhenaten, the Golden mask from General and High Priest Wendjebauendjed, and Egypt Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut statue, it can be said that the museum has rarest artifacts around the world.
