NMEC is the first museum of its type in the Arab world, devoted entirely to highlight the Egyptian civilization from prehistory to the present day. The museum is located within the archaeological site El-Fustat (First Islamic Capital), overlooking Ain El-sira springs.




The museum aims to frame the Egyptian tangible and intangible heritage showing the influence of the Egyptians on their land through history. The institution is built as an educational and research center to preserve, commemorate and publish information regarding the Egyptian civilization.  The collection is displayed through six thematic galleries, constructed to cover the following topics: Dawn of Civilization, The Nile, Writing State and Society, Material Culture, Beliefs and Thinking, and finally the Gallery of The Royal Mummy.
