The museum also documents the most important battles, assassinations, and crimes during the modern period, in addition to the evolution of uniforms and weaponry. The museum houses fire trucks used in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in addition to several models that represent the Egyptian struggle against colonialism, which culminated in a battle that took place on January 25th, 1952 in al-Ismailiyya.
