The bookstore at the new visitorâs centre at the Egyptian Museum.
The latest phase of the Egyptian Museum Development Project sees the development of a new visitor’s route, extended hours of operation (open until 10 p.m.) and a brand new visitor’s centre that includes a beautiful bookstore, cafeteria, restaurant and a children’s museum. The centre is on the west side of the Egyptian Museum and will be accessible through the new tour route.
Another phase includes an open-air permanent exhibition on the eastern side of the museum to showcase a number of sarcophagi, statuary and architectural elements from ancient Egyptian tombs and temples.
The visitor’s centre and open air exhbit are just one part of a multi-phase plan to transform the museum into a beautiful space for the display of ancient Egyptian art. The project will be complete after transferring some of the existing Egyptian Museum collection to the planned Grand Egyptian Museum overlooking Giza plateau. www.sca-egypt.org/eng/MR_PR.htm
