by Quartzy

This museum has there floors dedicated to, obviously, various forms of art, such as painting, music, photography, etc.

We're not so much into museums so we didn't visit all expositions. However, the Egyptian section was very impressive - you have to see the Dendur Temple, which is an original Egyptian Temple.

Entrance is by contribution; however, the strongly encourage visitors to pay the recommended amount which, as of 2007, was 20$ for adults and 10$ for students.
