9 Stunning Photos of the Newly Opened National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation

The newly opened museum is located in the heart of Al Fustat, housing between its walls 50,000 artifacts and the ancient natural lake of Ain El-Sira.

The newly inaugurated National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC) was added to Egypt's long list of exceptional museums last week. The museum is located in the ancient Fustat city, the location of the original city of Cairo, behind the famous Amr Ibn El Aas Mosque, according to the Museum's recently launched Facebook page.

The 25-acre state-of-the-art establishment, which just opened to the public last Wednesday, is designed by Egyptian architect El Ghazzali Kosseiba. It is currently showcasing 50,000 historical pieces that narrate the development of Egyptian civilization since the dawn of time. It also includes on its premises the ancient Ain El-Sira natural lake.

Entry and photography are free for everyone until the end of February, after which entry will be set at EGP 30 for Egyptians and EGP 60 for foreigners.

Here are some stunning pictures from the opening of the museum.
