The Alexandria National Museum has grown in importance these days, and is now considered one of Egypt's finest museums. It was inaugurated by President Hosni Mubarak on December 31st, 2003, and is one more addition to the reasons one should visit this grand old city. The national museum is located in a restored palace and contains about 1,800 artifacts that... More

Not as big as the museum in Cairo, but has a good collection of pieces from different eras in Egyptian history. Also houses Coptic artefacts.

In a lovely old mansion, this relatively new museum is worth a visit. Arranged over three floors, nicely lit and artefacts well lit. Signage could be better and there is no logical route around the museum. Allow 60-90 minutes. A guide is not necessary, as exhibits are clearly labelled. Admission is EGP40 for foreigners.

It is a small museum, but very much interesting as it shows in simple terms, the diversity of Egypt civilization,,pharanoic, Ptolemaic , Persian, Roman, and Arab/Islamic.

I have been quite few times to this very well managed museum. The display of the antiquities is clear and have sufficient explanationas, unlike most museums in Egypt. Of course it is not as big as the museum in Cairo but personally I find it much more pleasant to visit. It is centrally located and you could reach it by... More

This museum was very well laid out, very well curated and beautifully curated. Most of the older, Egyptian artifacts are in very good shape while the Greek and Roman items are badly deteriorated but this makes sense given the fact that the Greek city was not only looted but submerged for centuries. The exhibits detailing the excavation process of the... More

The museum is located in an old mansion and consists of three floors. It isn't big at all- an hour or will suffice for most people. But what an exhibition! Every object is exquisite, particularly those from the Pharonic and Greco-Roman periods. The museum is small, but it is also well-endowed, meaning that it can pick and choose the best... More
