I recommend buying the museum guide from the museum shop before you enter to have a better explanation of anything that interest you. It's available in Arabic and English and cost less than $1.I bought it on... More

it was nice, with amazing jewels, clean and not crowded. but the worst thing about it is "forbidding taking photos", that is so lame, you can finish the tour in maximum half an hour

In an old building once a royal home you can see a range of jewellery and personal treasures of the last king of Egypt and his family. Very, very quiet and with few visitors, lots... More

A wonderful Villa in each and every architecture details. I loved the celling and the coloured glass. It includes amazing Jewelry collection of Egypt's queen plus a lot of personal belongings from Mohamed Ali Era to King Farouk. I really liked the jewellery 😍😍😍
