The National Museum of Alexandria

By Seif Kamel
   Alexandria is a city of rich and long history. Established by Alexander
the Great during the 4 th century BC, Alexandria served as the capital of
Egypt for centuries. This is why the city hosts a large number of various
monuments and historical sites.
   Many of the findings explored all over Alexandria are displayed at the
National Museum of Alexandria. There are more than 2000 exhibits
dating to different periods of the history of Egypt. Several tours to
Alexandria include a visit to the National Museum.
   There are exhibits dating back to the Pharaonic, Greco, Roman,
Byzantine, Islamic eras. The latest of the museum dates back to the reign
of the family of Mohamed Ali.
