Post by newcastle »

Might be of some interest to Zooropa....if it's true :urm:

CAIRO – 11 May 2017: Minister of Antiquities Khaled el-Enany, decided to provide visitors, both Egyptians and foreigners, free entry to all museums in Egypt on May 18, celebrating the International Museum Day, general supervisor of the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, Mahrous Saied said Thursday.

Saied added that the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Cairo will host the International Museum Day celebrations for 3 days, held by the Egyptian Committee of the International Council of Museums.

The Museum's media representative, Moataz al-Husseini, said they will organize a series of seminars attended by a group of specialists and academics.

From past experience...don't hold your breath

Even if it comes to pass, be prepared to be in a crowded museum as the world & his brother shelters from the heat in the air-conditioned galleries. :lol:

There was the same thing last year, my wife and nieghbour went, my nieghbour could get in because she is fully married to a local man. My wife was refused. So be careful this may only be for locals and spouses and again not for everyone. But a good way of advertising to say "look what we are doing" Again I am not being negative just saying that this happened last year, and when people went they were refused entry. Of course a little backsheesh may go along way. :lol:
