Currently available on Google Play and the App Store, the new app - simply called 'NMEC' - lets you keep in touch with the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in a quick and easy way.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat, which you may recognise as the final resting place for those regal mummies in the Pharaohs' Golden Parade, has just launched its own app. Currently available on Google Play and the App Store, the new app - simply called 'NMEC' - was developed in cooperation with IPMagiX, and lets you keep in touch with the museum in a quick and easy way.
The app comes with four categories: 'Activities', 'Facilities', 'Events' and 'Visit Us'. 'Activities' and 'Events' allows you to stay up to date with the museum's cultural offerings, giving you a range of interactive experiences to help you stay in touch with Egypt's history. 'Facilities' meanwhile lists all the buildings you can visit, while 'Visit Us' will bring you to a convenient map to the museum along with opening hours and ticket prices (if you must know, it's just EGP 10).
You can also tap the drop down menu to get an indepth look at some of their main exhibitions, and even get a sneak peek at some of their current temporary exhibitions. Right now, there's a temporary exhibition about Egyptian cultural exchange with its neighbours in North and East Africa, displaying a number of colourful textiles and stunning jewellery.
