The Egyptian Antiquities Museum: The Egyptian Museum or The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, located in Cairo, Egypt is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and one of the largest and most important museums of ancient history in the world. It houses an extensive collection of Pharaonic antiquities, including artifacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, and provides insight into the rich history and culture of Egypt. The collection consists of approximately 120,000 items, with only a fraction of them on display at any given time, due to the limited space. The museum was founded in 1858 by French Egyptologist Auguste Mariette and its exhibits span from prehistoric Egypt to the Roman period. It is a popular destination for tourists interested in history and archaeology.
