Egyptian Antiquities Museum
al-Mathaf al-Masri Maydan Tahrir
The world's largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts can be found within the walls of the Egyptian Antiquities Museum. Housing more than 100,000 items, you will have to be selective as to what exhibits you will tour. Two-hour tours are available and are led by official museum guides.

Child Museum
Science, technology, imagination, history all make up this incredible world for kids. The "Discovery Hall" is one section of the Activity Center. It features activities in which children can discover different elements from the environment, such as precious stones, fossils and shells. Next comes the "Handicrafts and Arts Hall. It displays the ancient artesanies and various crafts, such as drawing on wood or leather with paint and water colors, weaving on carpet looms, or painting on glass and cardboard. The "Know yourself" division allows children to investigate skeletons and the internal human body parts.

The Museum Park
The park surrounding the Child Museum flows with an abundance of trees and plant species. Information on every species is posted for children to read and compare as they tour the park. A Bird watching tour is also available. Here children can observe birds in their natural environment through the use of binoculars. Magnifying glasses are also used in a tour for children to observe the behavior of ants, bees and other insects.

The Bent Pyramid
What makes this pyramid unique is that it rises more steeply (54.3°) than the Red
Pyramid or Giza pyramids. The explanation for its shape is unknown. Another puzzling fact is the two entrances, one on its west side as well as the more conventional one in its north face. Again, the reason is unknown – perhaps another mystery to solve!
