The Cairo International Airport Museum-(Terminal 3) was inaugurated in 2016, in the light of the cooperation protocol between the Ministry of Antiquities and the Ministry of Civil Aviation, to serve as the initial introduction to ancient Egypt, and even the window overlooking its iconic monuments and its majestic civilization.
The museum at that time occupied an area of approximately 60 square meters, and 38objects were displayed in it. In 2020 the museum was transferred from its first location to the fourth floor in the same building, in order to display more objects, as its area occupies about 150 square meters.
The museum currently displays a group of the most prominent objects through which the visitor can experience the incomparable history of Egypt through its various, periods. The objects guide the visitor through the different phases of Egyptian history, starting with the pharaonic period, passing through the Greco-Roman period, and also present Coptic and Islamic art, and bring the visitor into the modern period.
