The third day I was in Alexandria I had planed to visit the Graeco Roman Museum, but during breakfast I was told there was a new, very good museum, which was not mentioned in most of the guide books jet. I decided to go there instead, to the National Museum of Alexandria, and I liked it very much.
The museum is housed in the old Bassili Pasha Palace on Fouad Street (Tariq al-Horreyya) and has impressive historic artifacts from different periods of Egyptian history. On the ground floor (basement) there is an exhibition showing things from Phoraonic period. On the first floor are artifacts from the Graeco - Roman period, and some of the items found during the archaeological underwater excavations in Alexandria. On the second floor are exhibitions of Coptic and Islamic Egypt.
The artifacts are displayed in a good way with signs and texts to read.
Entrance fee is 30 pounds (July 2005).
Address: Fouad Street
