We actually crossed the medan to enter the museum. It was quiet that day but should be avoided on Fridays.

This the square who witnessed the large crouds of Egyptions the refused Mobarek regime, and the place who witnessed the celeberation by its stepping down. Its the symbol for the power of humanbeings to decide their present and future. You can visit the square when you visit the Egyptian museum. I advice you not to go deeply inside the square as sometimes you may meet unfriendly persons.

The square is subject to frequent gatherings which can be volatile, and really should be avoided by foreigners during those times. In calmer moments the square shows the wear and tear of revolution but is pretty central to modern Egyptian political life. Just west of the roundabout is a street called El-Tahrir Street. It is covered in murals depicting the revolutionary feelings. Great artwork. Warm people. Depending on the political climate, worth taking a look.

The place of the revolutions & the martyrs. It is the place where you will find the Egyptian youth fighting for their rights. It is a historical place where you can also find the egyptian museum, the mogama3, the American University in cairo (AUC) old building in addition, it connects to different places. Simply it is the heart of downtown Cairo
