The Ministry of Antiquities will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of Egyptian Parliament by waiving entrance fees to all archeological museums in the country, according to Ahram Online. 

The publication quoted Supreme Council of Antiquities Secretary General Mostafa Amin as saying: "Making visits [to museums] free of charge is one of the ministry's steps towards raising the people's cultural and archaeological awareness."

Amin also revealed that a 1986 ministerial decree has classified the parliament building as an 'Islamic monument.'
