This is seriously a hidden gem in Cairo. The museum, while small, is very well organized and really showcases the beauty that is Om Kalthoom. The museum is right next to the Nilometer so you can check out both sites together.

This collection of photos and memorabilia of the great Egyptian singer is barely worth the visit. If you go, ask the attendant to play you the videos of the singer. Otherwise you'll have no idea what the divine one sounded like!
