I'm planning on spending 5 days in Cairo in May, and my travel agent has booked a tour of the museum on Friday, May 13th.
I've read in some previous posts that due to demonstrations after afternoon prayers in Tahrir Square on Fridays that the museum isn't open.
Can anyone confirm this? Is it closed for the entire day on Fridays, or is it open in the mornings?
Is Tahrir Square even safe to be around on Fridays?
Thanks in advance!
