I agree with the reviewer who said it’s a smaller scale Cairo Museum. If you don’t know much about the history of Alexandria, it’s an interesting stop, and I recommend it. It’s not crowded, so you have plenty of room to move around even though...More

This place has many of the same type of things as the Egyptian Museum in a much smaller scale. Unlike the Egyptian Museum, this place has proper lighting and English descriptions of all items. Where the Egyptian Museum is still in the 1920’s, this place...More

Set up to give cruise passengers a digestible introduction into ancient Egypt, the Greco/Roman period, the Christian era, Islam and the more recent colonial period. Very well organised. Alas the cruise ships are not currently calling, but the doors of the museum are open. Highly...More

Nice small museum in an old villa. Somewhat eclectic presentation. Some very interesting exotic pieces of sculpture and mosaics from all over Egypt, not just origins from Alexandria. Clean, safe environment. I'm glad we visited, but I would not rate this as a must see...More

Excellent place to learn about the influence of other cultures in Alexandria. This museum is divided into three main halls: Ancient Egyptian, Coptic - Christians - , and the Muslim world. Consequently, each hall would explain the visitor the influence this city underwent under those...More

Sadly I didn’t pay the extra £E40 for photos here, but sometimes I like to look without the distraction of snapping photos. The villa itself is a lovely old building with marble stairs and scroll bannisters. There are two floors beneath ground level, one is...More

We visited the museum with our tour guide Kholoud. It is a fascinating, small museum that gives a very good overview of the history of Egypt through some concise archaeological examples of the region. Having a tour guide is highly recommended.

The museum itself is in a beautiful detached old house, I believe formerly a US Consulate, but don't quote me on that. The museum is split into 3 levels, each containing artefacts from the different periods in Egypt's history. Perhaps a little expensive for the...More
