Museu do Cairo
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo has the world’s largest collection of pharaonic artifacts; no journey to Egypt is complete without a visit to its halls. The original collection was founded and held at Boulaq in the late nineteenth century by Auguste Mariette. The artefacts were relocated to Ismail Pasha’s palace in Giza in 1891 and then to the present structure in Tahrir Square in 1902, which is the world’s first purpose-built museum edifice.
