Tahrir’s Egyptian Museum receives guests for free on Tuesday
Minister of Antiquities Khaled al-Anani announced opening the Egyptian Museum to the public for free on Tuesday for locals and foreigners residing in Egypt, marking the 116th anniversary of the museum’s opening.
During the ceremony organized by the ministry on Monday at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir square, Anani said that the Egyptian Museum is the first reference to all archaeological museums in the world, as it contains over 160,000 unique and varied artifacts, noting that the museum will not be affected by the transfer of the Tutankhamun collection to Giza’s Grand Egyptian Museum, which is currently under construction.
Thepresence of as many as 31 ministers and over 34 ambassadors and cultural advisers confirms the Egyptian state’s interest in history and civilization and its strong support for heritage, Anani said.
Anani said that the Antiquities Ministry began to implement a plan of development of the Egyptian Museum, which includes exhibiting antiquitiesthat will replace the collection of Tutankhamun, as about 4,500 objects were already transferred to Giza’s new museum.
The development process is funded by a grant from the European Union for a period of seven years, Anani said, adding that the plan is implemented by the Ministry of Antiquities and an association of the directors of five European museums, including the Turin’s Egyptian Museum in Italy,London’s British Museum, the Louvre Museum in Paris, and the Egyptian Museum of Berlin.
Sabah Abdel Razek, director general of the Egyptian Museum of Liberation, said Monday that the celebration of the 116th anniversary of the opening of the Egyptian Museum coincides with the presentation of rare relics of the royal tomb, Yuya and Tuya.
In an interview with al-Youm on dmc, Abdel Razek said that the archaeological collection has replaced the Tutankhamun collection, which was moved this year to the Grand Museum.
She explained that the artifacts of theYuya and Tuya tomb werecompletely discovered in 1905, about three years after the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir was officially inaugurated.
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum is home to the largest collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world. It displays 120,000 artifacts. The museum was first build in 1835 near Al-Azbakeyah Garden and in 1855 it was moved to the Cairo Salaheddin Citadel.
In 1855, the Egyptian government gave Archduke Maximilian of Austria many of the artifacts that are now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
In 1858, following the establishment of Egypt’s Antiquities Service under the direction of French archaeologist August Mariette, a new museum was established at Boulaq’s Nile bank.
But regretfully in 1878, the building suffered significant damage from the Nile River flooding. In 1892, the collections were moved to a former royal palace in Giza where they remained safe until 1902 when the museum in Tahrir Square was built.
TOURISM INDUSTRY IN EGYPT IS RECOVERING
According to the tourism minister, the figures of tourists visiting the country raised up to 40 percent in the first nine months of 2018 from a year earlier; where Egypt is recovering from the collapse that began back in 2011 and remained stubbornly persistent.
“We expect that by the end of 2018 we will not be at the levels that we’ve seen in 2010, but we are approaching that,” Rania Al-Mashat -tourism minister- declared in an interview. She added, “The rebound is quite steep and we’re trying to put the industry on a competitive base compared to our peers.”
The minister also gave a hint about the government plans to announce a new private equity fund to upgrade its hotels as well as new investment opportunities on islands in the Red Sea.
Egypt Is The Most Valuable, Says Lonely Planet
The world’s biggest travel publisher, Lonely Planet, named Egypt the most valuable destination of 2019.
The website specified Southern Nile Valley, as one of Egypt’s best places to travel to, stressing that its near-incomparable historical itinerary represents a superb deal for travelers in 2019. Lonely Planet wrote this beautiful captivating passage on their website: “Egypt’s Southern Nile Valley is the flag-bearer for the country’s return to travel’s super league, and its near-incomparable historical itinerary represents a superb deal for travelers in 2019. For starters, world-class ancient sites hugging the Nile south from Luxor to Aswan are accessible for a few dollars. If you’re on a cruise, food and land transport will be included; otherwise, it’s easy to make inexpensive arrangements for all but a handful of big-ticket temples and tombs, which are more than worth the admission price themselves.”
The annual report showed that Egypt welcomed about 8.5 million tourists during 2017 with a 55.1 percent increase, compared to the same period of 2016. Go Egypt!
