Alexandria's Graeco-Roman Museum to Be Fully Renovated by Late 2019

The architectural masterpiece will boast more than 40K pieces narrating the story Egypt's Greek and Roman eras.

Graeco-Roman Museum

In its efforts to boost tourism in Alexandria, Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities has announced that around 40% off the EGP 120 million renovations announced last year are complete and that the museum is scheduled to reopen in late 2019, Egypt Independent reports.

Alexandria's Graeco-Roman Museum first opened in 1892 in a five-room apartment, before being moved to its current building three years later. It contains rare pieces from different civilisations, most predominantly from the Greco-Roman civilisation as well as Ancient Egypt's.

The museum will boast 30 exhibition halls containing more than 40K pieces of  artifacts, curated to tell the story of the often-forgotten Greek and Roman eras in Egypt and their connection to Pharaonic history. As it stands, the museum is the largest of its kind in the Mediterranean region.
