* Venue:
- The museum is very near to "El Zahraa" metro station. After getting out of the metro station you turn right and walk until finding a "wataneya" gas station then turn left and walk until finding the museum sign on the left.

- I think the public transportation lines which pass through "Kornish El Nile" will lead to the museum, but I don't have details.

* Time: Asking by phone, the opening time is from 9 am to 5 pm.
* Tickets: 2 LE for Egyptians.
* Guide: 40 LE for Egyptians.

The museumِ contains fossils of plants, animals, fish and a nice section for rocks. I saw bones of dinosaurs, extinct animals, and learned about how rocks reserve the remains of animals and plants. I saw tools and pots of the old ages. I saw skulls of monkeys' ancestors. I enjoyed watching many rocks, their types, their use in industry, their formations (as sun rays for example). I learned about rocks in Egypt and where they were found. I saw samples of rocks granted by other countries. There was a sample rock from the moon! There were geology tools and compasses.

* Notes:
- It will be more fun to go in groups.
- The museum is quit and not crowded. This gives the opportunity to watch every single item.
- If you don't have much knowledge of geology, a guide is advisable.
- Asking by phone, photographing is allowed.
- There is a library in the museum building.
- It looks old, but it deserves a visit.

It could be a hidden gem being full of nice ancient fossils and skeletons of dinosaurs and ancient creatures, but it needs efforts for development as it somehow looks pale and unknown. There was nobody but us, and it has a very low ticket price.

We went there by car more than once and we hardly found it. Finally we found the museum when we parked in the Nile crystal boat parking and then walked towards the area it said. It closes on Tuesday. My kids enjoyed a lot and we spent around 1 and half hour there. The place is old and needs some renovation and some good marketing/advertising. It was free of charge because we went there on 6th of October day.

After initially having difficulty finding the museum, (as it is tucked away behind some office buildings) the museum turned out to have a well collated collection of geological samples and a small number of fossils and skeletons.
