A very clean, organized and well maintained museum. Easy access to metro station. It is quite big museum that offers rare collections and it is separated in each rooms or side. Highly recommended if you are into museums.

A relatively rare collection and provides a good insight to the coptic world in Cairo. It has rare and unique detail on monasteries and artifacts that probably are not seen anywhere else.

This was a great museum for some interesting artifacts which aren’t included anywhere else. It was founded by a Pasha who had a love for the Coptic artifacts and convinced the Antiquities Dept to remove them from the Cairo Egyptian Museum. What a great move....these...More

Not sure, every place is different in how they handle it. You might e-mail them directly, they are pretty good about responding.
