Set aside a couple of hours to appreciate this museum. There is so much to see and to read. It is rich with history and the most beautiful stained glass.

The museum displays many interesting pieces that go back to the greco-roman era and coptic egypt (reaching to seventh century), it is worth a visit as it continues the story of ancient Egypt, the main issue is the dim lighting inside.

We did not know that so much Christian history existed in this small place. The exhibits are well-done and widely spaced apart. You will enjoy it.

Definitely worth visiting. Interesting items, most if not all very clearly labelled and organized. Not too big, takes about an hour or less to go through everything.

Seeing the line we've bounced, it's worth it alone. Our guide has been very knowledgeable and has communicated many thought-provoking facts. After the trip, you can explore on your private.

This museum within the highly secured Coptic enclave offers awesome historical pieces of Coptic relics, icons and archictecture, some dating back 15 centuries. Definetely worth visiting.

Not sure, every place is different in how they handle it. You might e-mail them directly, they are pretty good about responding.

I think Egyptian entrance fee is 5 or 10 LE though, and this is often applied also to visitors from other Arabic speaking countries.
