Commercial tour of The Grand Egyptian Museum
In This GEM tour to the commercial areas of the Museum, visitors can choose between four scheduled intervals between 9 AM and 6 PM, the museum’s official opening hours. The guided tours provide entry to the Atrium (Grand Hall), which houses the giant statue of Ramses II, the Conference Center, the Commercial section, which has a variety of cafes and restaurants, and the outdoor gardens.
Beanos, Zooba, 30 North, and a few non-food related companies, such as Kahhal Looms Hand-Made Rug, have recently opened their doors in the museum’s Commercial section.
“Until the formal opening, all other interior areas, including access to the galleries and collections, remain prohibited,” according to the website description.
Although the museum, which is expected to be the greatest archaeological museum in the world and the future home of Tutankhamun’s full collection, has yet to be ‘inaugurated,’ increasing activity and public involvement with the institution in recent months. It is now thought to be in the testing phase, before its formal launch.

Kindly find below the guidelines & regulations for the visit:
The commercial tours for the pretrial phase don’t include the museum interior spaces, access to the main galleries, and the two Tutankhamun galleries. These galleries will be available for visitors after the grand opening.
The atrium contains valuable monuments and artifacts that have been preserved for thousands of years. Help us preserve them for more years by not touching them, eating in the main hall, and smoking inside the museum.
There is currently no refund policy, as we are still conducting a pretrial phase for our exclusive guests.
Be advised that arrival time should be 15 minutes before your tour.
Photos are only allowed at the Ramses II statue.
