Imagine going to a place a few miles from the center of Cairo where Egypt's history and art come alive! At the Pharaonic Village you'll see faithful reproductions of buildings, clothing and lifestyles, a complete replica of the tomb of Tutankhamen and museums relating to different periods of Egyptian history. Dr. Hassan Ragab created this living museum from the beginnings of a papyrus plantation on Jacob Island. With a vision, he was able to recreate ancient life with unrivaled collections of endangered plants and species. Carrying on the tradition is Dr. Ragab's son, Dr. Abdelsalam, who continues to improve and add to the village.
Because of their meticulous attention to detail, the unique exhibits offer more than education and entertainment, they are a vital resource for the preservation of our knowledge of the Ancient world and modern history. Join us and embark on an adventure into the rich and exciting times of the Pharaohs and beyond.
