I won’t drag my husband and son there, but I’m glad that I visited this site with a women’s group. Some of the jewellery pieces are absolutely gorgeous.

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.
