Set to open in the new administrative capital is Egypt’s first religious tolerance museum, combining pieces from the Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic and Jewish civilizations, according to the Minister of Antiquities, Khaled Anany.
To fit all that holiness in one place, 750 meters of land is in order, solely devoted to showcasing meticulously selected centerpieces from our indeed diverse culture. Among the selection, panels are ex-Antiquities Minister, Zahi Hawas, and General Manager of the Tahrir Egyptian Museum Sabah Abdel Razik.
While Egypt is home to a Coptic museum and an Islamic art museum, Magda Haroun, Head of Egypt’s Jewish Community Council, is currently working on establishing a national Jewish museum.
