Kafr El-Sheikh Museum

Many museums abound in our beloved Egypt. Museums that carry with them a great documented history of the most important events through several eras. An example of these museums is the Kafr El-Sheikh Museum.

The idea of establishing the museum dates back to 1993, and construction work began in 2002. It covers an area of 6,800 square meters. It includes 1,200 antiquities that list the historical role of Kafr El-Sheikh cities through the ages. The Kafr El-Sheikh Museum includes three halls containing archaeological artifacts that were found in the great Boutu necropolis and the temples area, as well as other archaeological sites in Kafr El-Sheikh. The museum has allocated a hall to display the collections embodied in the period when the city of Sakha hosted the Holy Family’s journey during its visit to Egypt.

And for the scenario of the museum display, it revolves around the myth of Isis and Osiris and the conflict between Horus and set. The scenario also highlights some topics such as the history of science during different historical eras such as medicine, veterinary and pharmacy, in order to link the museum to Kafr El-Sheikh University.

Among the most important pieces displayed in the museum: a Greco-Roman statue depicting a child in a lake, a statue of King Ramses II with the goddess Sekhmet, and a progressive painting of King Thutmose III.
