This Papayas scroll is over 300 years old and was found in the tomb of a noble couple. It is located in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This is just a small part of this scroll as it is over 6 meters long. The art work and colors are incredible. We enjoyed ever minute of our visit learning about new things. #wintergetaway
The oldest museum in Africa, face to face with mummies! Unveiling the mysterious veil of Pharaoh
The Egyptian Museum is known as the Pride of Cairo. It is like a Treasure Island, full of treasures, vast and vast. My friend and I first came here, lost in the cultural relics, and turned to lost the road.
Pure gold enamel with glaze and ivory, god whip scepter and visceral snow can, wearing a sacred snake like a pharaoh statue wearing a gold skirt, 4700 years of vivid papyrus painting... Tens of thousands of treasures are private, just like this millennium old city, sometimes faint and sometimes bleak.
Tips: Before 9:00 am and after 3 pm, the museum has a small flow of people and the largest number of visitors at noon; if you want to take photos or take photos, remember to buy a photo coupon in advance (there will be staff to check) ticket). The most wonderful golden masks and golden dragonflies are on the second floor. If you don't want to line up, you can stroll upstairs.
You could spend months in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and not see all there is to see. This is one of the most famous pieces, the face of Nefertiti. The gold one is in a German Museum. I found just as interesting the paintings that would have been hung in the walls of nobility to decorate their homes, even thousands of years ago flowers and birds were popular subjects. #wintergetaway
The Egyptian Museum is full of treasure. This statue is so famous it is even represented in Egyptian currency. Get a tour guide to show you the museum, they will tell you all these interesting things, worth the money to hire them. #wintergetaway
