Alexandria National Museum Tours

With three floors of exhibitions and some 1,800 artifacts on display, the Alexandria National Museum offers a fascinating introduction to the city's rich history. Housed in the impressively restored Al-Saad Bassili Pasha Palace, the exhibitions present a chronological journey through time, with artifacts from Egypt's four ages: Ancient, Greco-Roman, Coptic and Islamic.

Highlights include a sphinx found at Aboukir, a large collection of antique coins, a dazzling array of royal jewels, and portraits of pharaohs Menkaure, Akhenaten, and Hatshepsut. In addition, another section is devoted to artifacts found underwater along Alexandria's coast, including statues of Venus and a Roman replica of the head of Alexander the Great.
