The Red Sea Governorate is launching Egypt’s first underwater military museum in Hurghada.

By alleviating pressure from natural coral reefs and diverting traffic to three alternative sites- Shaab al-Saqala, Uruq al-Tawil, and Arg Jama’ in Magawish - the project is set to create new coral habitats and protect the Red Sea’s marine ecosystem, making it the first museum of its kind in Africa.

The museum will feature a collection of 15 carefully submerged warships, each with its own unique history and significance.
