Description

The Royal Jewelry Museum is one of the largest museums in all of Egypt. This museum is packed with incredible art and jewelry of immeasurable wealth, donated by Egyptian royalty such as the Mohammed Ali dynasty. Founded in 1919, the museum was originally the palace of Princess Fatima Al-Zahraa Haidar, of the Egyptian royal family, daughter of Lady Zeinab Fahmy and Prince Prince Ali Heidar Shanassy. It proudly displays 11,000 pieces of fine jewelry including King Farouk's gorgeous royal badges, ebony walking stick, gold, precious goblets embedded with over 200 sapphire stones, 29 pieces of diamond, and golden magnifying glasses inlaid with 510 diamonds, 16 rubies and sapphires. Seeing these extravagant items in person is a truly unforgettable experience! You'll also get the chance to head to the famous Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which is a major library and cultural center located on the Mediterranean of Alexandria. It was founded to pay homage to the largest library of the ancient world: the Great Library of Alexandria, one of the Wonders of the Ancient World.
