According to Egyptian Archeologist Zahi Hawass, “The Antiquities’ Ministry is going to relocate the royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Al Fustat. The event is to take place next June through a prestigious parade.”
During his speech at the Grand Egyptian Museum’s fifth international conference, Hawass mentioned, “The Egyptian project that studies the royal mummified bodies is still ongoing,” adding that “Next September, a monumental discovery is going to be uncovered, at the Valley of the Kings, Luxor.”
On his side, Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al Anani expressed, “To protect these royal mummies, a device at the highest level will be purchased”
Three new halls at the NMEC are to be inaugurated including the Central Hall, Royal Mummies, and the Capital. The first hall is going to exhibit antiquities from the prehistoric era until the modern era.
The second is going to include 20 royal mummified bodies. The third is going to be a multimedia room to narrate the history of the Egyptian capital cities throughout history.
