What do you think about getting acquainted with the emergence and development of the Egyptian civilization, and the manifestations of the civilizational integration between it and the other civilizations that succeeded on its land in the first museum of Egyptian antiquities in Sharm El Sheikh?
It is "Sharm El-Sheikh Museum", located on an area of 191,000 square meters. The idea of its inception dates back to 1999 AD, and it was designed to include three exhibition halls: the “Great Hall”, “Hathuri Corridor”, “Outdoor Display Area” or “cemetery area”, and an entertainment area that includes a number of restaurants, bazaars, heritage craft shops and an open theater Spaces for celebrations and events. In these halls, 5,200 artifacts are displayed, carefully selected from the museum repositories of Qasr al-Nil, Kom Oshim, Saqqara, the Suez and Ismailia museums, the Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria, the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, as well as the stores of Luxor and Ashmounin in Minya, among others.
In more detail, the "Great Hall" expresses man and wildlife in ancient Egypt by displaying a number of paintings representing the Egyptian family in different historical stages, and it also contains a group of sphinx statues that represent the animal and human form, as well as a number of sacred animals in ancient Egypt such as cats and scarabs of different shapes and sizes, which were discovered in 2019 AD in the Saqqara archaeological area. The "Hathuri Corridor" includes statues of kings such as "Thutmose I", "Nakhtanabo", "Ramses II" and "Ramses III". However, it displays a simulation of a complete archaeological tomb with all its details, and the funerary furniture it contains. The corridor was named by this name, because it contained 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 of them are: the head of Queen Hatshepsut, a rare piece of mosaic from Alexandria dating back to the fourth century BC, a statue of the god “Eros” hunting deer, and a rare statue of the god “Bes” made of clay.
