Alexandria's Jewel: The Rebirth of the Greco-Roman Museum Alexandria's Jewel: The Rebirth of the Greco-Roman Museum
November 13, 2023
The Greco-Roman Museum, a pivotal cultural landmark in Alexandria, has joyously reopened its doors following the successful completion of an extensive restoration project. Originally inaugurated in 1895, this museum has been a cornerstone for showcasing archaeological treasures from Alexandria, boasting a collection of approximately 10,000 artifacts.
In 2005, the museum temporarily closed its doors to embark on a much-needed restoration journey. However, unforeseen delays prolonged the project over several years. This comprehensive restoration not only revitalized the museum's exterior and interior aesthetics but also introduced an innovative exhibition layout, enhancing the visitor experience. The project encompassed state-of-the-art enhancements in object display, lighting, and security systems. It also included the addition of new halls, a library, expanded storage facilities, and a cutting-edge restoration center.
The museum's reopening was graced by esteemed figures including Egypt's Prime Minister, the Minister of Tourism & Antiquities, the Minister of Culture, and the Governor of Alexandria. This momentous event heralds a significant enrichment to Alexandria’s tourist attractions, offering both local and international visitors an enriched cultural experience in one of Egypt's most historic cities
