this museum is very important. if you have a tour in Alex you should visit it. the museum divided into three sections the pharaonic, the Graeco-roman and the Coptic & Islamic section. it also has a special part which displays underwater photos. simply this museum show us the history of Alexandria in all periods.

Alexandria itself is a fabulous place to visit. A hive of activity and bustling with energy. The museum is a 'must see' if you visit Alexandria. You will not be disappointed but remember to wear comfy shoes!

its the second largest city in Egypt. This Alexandria has been immortalized by writers such as E-M- Forster and Cavafy. Generations of immigrants from Greece, Italy and the Levant settled here and made the city synonymous with commerce, cosmopolitanism and bohemian culture. you mustn't miss it....
