Right next door to the Ibn Tulun Mosque. It can be a bit hard to find by just mentioning the museum, but if you ask for the mosque you will end up in the right place without too much discussion. We..... more »
This museum, made up of two very old homes (16th and 17th centuries) which were restored by a British military physician during the 30’s and 40’s, offer a glimpse into the past not available... more »
One of my favourite places in Cairo, such a hidden gem! It is an oasis of serenity in this megalopolis chaos! Apparently the guided visit is short, so DYI ! I love the architecture, the artifacts, the garden and the book/gifts shop. The " tales of the kritlia" book is great! The house had been associated to some interesting fairy tales:)
Very cool museum. Something off the trail of the ancient... and into the modern age of Egypt. Which is arguably more interesting.
By far the awesomest place I’ve been to in Cairo. There are in total 62 rooms and everything is gorgeous. rooms are themed from Persian, English, Turkish, Indian, Damascus, Chinese. The craftsmanship that goes into all the woodwork in this house is exceptional.
This is the best preserved old house in cairo with wide collection of furniture, art works and monuments, my two sons and me loved the place and highly recommend.
Great place to visit will take you back in history opens by 9.00 am you will pay for the entry ticket and your camera use
