we had a tour and watched the Culturama show. it is quite sad that no one visits this amazing place. I think it probably needs more publicity

An interesting place to visit, you need to book in for the relevant language performance though you might find you are the only person present. It was interesting to learn the chronology of the egyptian empire.

You are welcomed by a member of the library staff who takes you on a short conducted tour of the venue before leaving you to your own devices. The big draw is access to the modern Alexandrian library thanks to computer links.... More

Very peaceful environment...as you would expect. Culturama is worth a viewing but may be a little expensive at £6.00

I went for a purpose, namely to research the catalog of the Alexandria Library. The building is attractive, with a nice inner court. Staff is friendly and did their best, to make my visit a success. The view of the nearby mosque was stunning, and the landscaping was outstanding. Did not have the time to watch the Culturama show. The... More
