Visitors enjoyed the large National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation in the ancient city of Fustat, now part of Cairo after its opening on Saturday after the overnight arrival of 22 royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir in a royal procession. Partially open since February 2017, the museum displays a collection of around 50,000 artefacts, presenting the Egyptian civilisation from prehistoric times to the modern era in a more civilised way. “This museum aims to protect and preserve Egyptian heritage from the pre-historical period up to now,” Head of archaeology at the National Museum of Civilisation Mahrous Elsanadedy said.
