The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization received on Sunday more than 800 visitors, in addition to 400 representatives of local and international news agencies, newspapers and television channels, following the golden parade that witnessed the transfer of 22 royal mummies on Saturday.
Visitors toured the main display hall as well as the mummies hall, and the number of visitors are expected to rise after the museum received international recognition from people around the world, who are interested in the Egyptian archeology. They also visited Ain El Sira Lake, which the museum overlooks, while adhering to all precautionary measures and health safety controls applied in museums throughout the Republic.
Fayrouz Fikry, Deputy CEO of the Museum Authority indicated that 600 visitor tickets were sold through the electronic reservation platform launched by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities last Wednesday, as part of its plan to facilitate the process of booking entrance tickets to the museum.
The ticket price for citizens is 60 pounds, 30 pounds for local students, while the price for a foreign visitor is 200 pounds, and for foreign students 100 pounds, while the museum’s opening hours are from 9AM-5PM, in addition to Friday’s evening hours from 6PM-9PM.
It is worth noting that the museum’s board of directors had agreed to grant a 50% reduction on the ticket price to Egyptians and foreigners for a period of two weeks, starting from April 4 to 17, in addition to allowing representatives of the local and international media to film for free inside the main display hall on April 4-5.
