  • Extremely interesting and the staff are so friendly!
  • This museum allows one to travel through seven millennia of Egyptian history by focusing on the development of textiles which were influenced by and reflected events and trends in day-to-day life as well as in history, art, religion, politics, culture, commerce, and economics. Both the groupings under different themes and individual pieces on exhibit have clear, well-written descriptions in English. The staff was very courteous and there are some worthwhile items in the gift shop. Allow a minimum of four hours to get the benefit of what is on display.
  • A special thanks to the wonderful staff at the museum especially ‘Rasha’ who give me her time and took around the museum explaining each and everting. Starting from building origins itself up to all about the textiles deployed here. The Museum is unique kind of idea in the Middle East and one of the few worldwide. It is located in AlMoez Street. This museum building was ‘Sabil’ Mohammad Ali to provide fresh water to the residence of the area. Egyptian Textile Museum. Behind each piece in the museum is a story that recounts many eras. From the old Egypt up to the new days. Recommended
