History Of The Museum

Built at the end of the 19th century, exactly in 1895 during the reign of Abbas II; the Khedive of Egypt at the time, The Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria is one of the largest and most impressive in the country.

The museum hosts the biggest and widest collection which represents the Alexandrian culture throughout history in a wonderful blend of The Greco-Roman and the ancient Egyptian culture, art, and beliefs. With more than 52 rooms, halls, galleries, and a large remarkable garden, the Museum would be very impressive for any guests who would be interested in the history and the art of Alexandria.

The museum today has around 40,000 displays covering a period of history that extends for more than 1000 years from the establishment of the city in 332 BC until the Arab conquest of the city in the 6th century AD. 

Unfortunately, the museum now is closed and can not be visited
