Cairo Hunting Museum
Hunting Museum in Cairo was inaugurated in 1963 at the Palace of Prince
Mohammad Ali, and it has a long corridor adjacent to the northern fence of the
museum displays a collection of mummified animals, some
of which were gifted to Prince Mohammad Ali as the kingdom's crown prince.
Other artifacts were collected after the 23rd Revolution in 1952
from palaces and rest houses of King Farouq and Prince Yousef Kamal, who were
known for their passion for hunting. The museum was closed in 2006 for
renovation and was reopened in 2017.
The museum's artifacts include a rare collection of
mummified colored butterflies, snakeskin, a collection of mummified Egyptian
and European migratory birds, deer heads, camels, and predators. The museum
also displays some of the Sudanese ruler's gifts to King Farouq, which includes
pieces of furniture made of elephant's ivory.
