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. Buy the extra ticket for the manuscript museum and the antiquities museum both worth it. Just give yourself enough time. If you can, go on your own or on a private tour rather than with a group.

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. However it was closed due to Covid and we couldn't even walk around it. Had to view it from across the road, but still worth seeing

Better not to skip visiting this place at least once, although I am planning to go there again. The place is so organized and clean. Definitely, it is so quiet and relaxing.

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.
