What do you think about getting to know the origin and development of Egyptian civilization, and the manifestations of cultural integration between it and other civilizations that existed on its land? you can learn about it all in the first Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Sharm el-Sheikh

It is the Sharm el-Sheikh Museum, located on an area of 191,000 square meters. The idea dates back to 1999 and was designed to include three exhibition halls: the Great Hall, the Hathouri hall, the Outer Exhibition Area or the Cemetery Area, an entertaining area with a number of restaurants, bazaars, heritage crafts shops, an open theatre, and spaces for celebrations and events. These halls display 5,200 carefully selected artifacts from the museum stores of the Nile Palace, Kom Oshim, Sakara, Suez and Ismaili museums, and the Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria, the Egyptian Museum of Liberation, as well as the stores of Luxor, Ashmonin, Minya, and others.

In More details, the Great Hall reflects the human and wildlife of ancient Egypt by displaying a number of paintings representing the Egyptian family at different historical stages, as well as a collection of sphinx statues representing the animal body with humanity, as well as a number of sacred animals in ancient Egypt such as cats, and gypsies of different shapes and sizes, discovered in 2019 in the area of antiquities of Sakkara. And for the "Hathouri Hall" it includes statues of kings such as Thutmose the first, Nechtnapo, Ramses the second and Ramses the third. It also shows a simulation of a complete archaeological cemetery in all its details and funeral furniture. The hall was named after a large number of artifacts belonging to the god Hathor.

There is no doubt that all the artifacts in the museum are of great importance, but the most important ones are: queen Hatshepsut's head, a rare mosaic from Alexandria dating back to the 4th century, a statue of the god Eros hunting deer, and a rare statue of the god "Bes” of unfinished clay.
