Incredibly beautiful. Plan your visit allowing yourself a couple of hours if you truly want to enjoy it. It is a state of the art facility with permanent and temporary exhibits.

The highlight of our trip was going to be seeing the Library of Alexandria. The structure is an amazing sun disk representation surrounded by high delapedared buildings. It's looks so intimidating.

I wish I could have spent more than 2 hours. What a phenomenal complex! Wish we had some thing like this in USA. I want to come back after COVID and go through the stacks. I really enjoyed the Anwar Sadat exhibition, old manuscripts and modern art.

During our tour, we stopped by the Alexandria library. Entrance fee is 70 EGP. Unfortunately, you don’t see much of the old library anymore, instead you see the modern part of it. There are some exhibitions inside the library but some of them require an additional fee.
