Coptic Museum

Recommended
At the inauguration of the museum in 2006, President Mubarak stressed the importance of Coptic artistic heritage for Egypt, an opinion borne out by the stunning collections here: icons, frescoes, jewellery, sculptures (in particular the capitals from the Monastery of St Jeremy in Saqqara), manuscripts (psalter sur parchment and Gospel of Thomas on papyrus), and the famous fabrics.
