This palace belonged to one of the less known princesses of the previous Egyptian royal family. The palace was designed by European artists. It is medium in size, but really impressive with its stained glass windows, fancy wooden and marble floors, paintings and decorations. It is home to a nice collection of royal jewelry. Botha the palace and the collection... More

This is a modern history museum of the jewelery from the family members from King Farouk down to the last members until the revolution. Fascinating exhibition and well worth a few hours of time. The house alone is worth seeing.

This collection is amazing. The jewelry itself is gorgeous. One of the best things is the building itself. Grand ceilings and paintings. I think the bathroom is as big as my house.

Well, it was the only thing I liked in Alexandria, it was quite interesting. Not as Cairo national, of course, but it is worth going if you are around. The collection of jewelry pieces of the King of Egypt and his descendants dated 17-20 century

Okay! I shall start from the beginning. It wasn't my idea to visit this place, but my mom's. Didn't really want to go.
