  • Very impressive how they have worked to preserve this amazing piece of work. There are many exhibits which tell the story of the Egyptian history.
  • This museum was okay. It is free and rather small. Conveniently located on one of the main streets so we popped I quickly. Some old Greek and Roman pieces that were interesting to view.
