          The permanent collection is divided into two separate regions, one chronological the other thematic. The chronological areas will be the following: Archaic, Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, Medieval, Islamic, modern and contemporary. The thematic areas will be the following: Dawn of Civilization, The Nile, Writing, State and Society, Material Culture, Beliefs and Thinking and the Gallery of Royal Mummies. UNESCO provided technical help to the museum. The collections was taken from other Egyptian museums such as the Egyptian Museum, the Coptic Museum, the Museum of Islamic Art, the Manial Palace and Museum in Cairo, and the Royal Jewelry Museum in Alexandria. On 3 April 2021, the museum was officially opened, right before the moving of 22 mummies, including 18 kings and four queens, from the Egyptian Museum in an event termed the Pharaohs' Golden Parade.

          Great tour with Hoda
          We had an amazing private tour to Saqqara. It was a lot less busy than Giza pyramids and it was amazing to go inside tombs and see heiroglyphics and paintings up close. Our guide Hoda was great with our two young kids, keeping them engaged as well as giving lots of interesting information.

          Great Service
          Kyrillos was 10/10. Our flight was a bit delayed, he was waiting for us before passport control, already had visas to avoid an extra line, took care of getting our suitcases and had very welcoming energy. Car was clean, comfortable and he even played our music. Great experience would recommend.

          Isaac has a been a blessing since we landed. He was there waiting for us before the madness and helped us get to the car without issue. He drove us to our hotel and was very informative as we drove past everything. I couldn't ask for a more stress free process. Highly recommend

          This was an excellent service provided by Isaac and his company. Will definitely recommend them to anyone traveling to Egypt looking for top notch service. The SUV was brand new, clean and comfortable by US standards. The chauffeur gave us a nice breakdown of history of Cairo as we traveled to our hotel. Worth every penny.

          Absolutely amazing! Mario is hands down the BEST tour guide in Egypt. Our trip to the pyramids was absolutely unforgettable thanks to his incredible knowledge and passion. He brought the history and stories of the pyramids to life, weaving in fascinating details and personal anecdotes that captivated us all.He will differentiate myth from facts. His expertise was truly impressive, and he answered every question with enthusiasm and clarity. Mario's friendly and engaging personality made the tour even more enjoyable, and he went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. If you're looking for a truly exceptional experience exploring Egypt's treasures, I would highly recommend Mario!. He is an absolute gem and will make your trip truly memorable.

          10/10 Giza Tour
          Hoda & Mr. Kyrillos were an amazing pair for this tour! They were incredibly kind and knowledgeable. I felt safe with them and learned a lot! They picked me up right from where I was staying and waited for me while my group ate lunch. Hoda tailored the tour to our needs (highlights or in depth) and we could not be more pleased with the experience! They went above and beyond and took us for authentic shopping after our tour as well. 5 stars aren’t enough!

        Great museum! A little noisy, as the majority of the items exhibited are in one big room. Good signage, so a guided tour isn't necessary. The mummy collection was outstanding, but the rest of the museum was equally interesting. We spent about 2 hours, but could have stayed longer if we weren't still recovering from jet lag.

        The museum is amazing. Its artifacts trace the history of Egypt from ancient times to modern times. The Hall of Royal. Mummies is stunning. This museum is a must, especially for anyone who loves and appreciates history. Our host, Hoda, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She certainly made this an experience we will long remember.

        We had a great visit at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. Dina was our guide. She is a wonderful knowledgeable guide and her explanations of what we were viewing really enhanced the experience. It was absolutely amazing to view the mummies, which they don't let you photograph. I am so glad we did this tour. I highly recommend it if you are in Cairo.

        Our tour of the NEMC led by Dina was a highlight of our Cairo trip. Her pride and passion for Egyptian history was infectious. I love delving into the details while my husband can be easily distracted but Dina handled us naturally like a champ. She was well prepared, superbly organized, and provided just the perfect amount of information and in just the right way to keep both us engaged from the beginning through the end.

        During this visit to Cairo, we have taken a few tours from different tour companies, all of whom have way more reviews than Twitter Egypt Company. Even so, we had the best time with Dina and learnt (and retained) the most interesting information about Egyptian history. Thank you for the memories, Dana. We will see you again the next time we're in town.

        Just back from a fabulous private tour with Gina to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. What a way to spend our first full morning in Cairo.
        Gina is incredibly knowledgeable, caring and passionate about her work. To walk-through several thousand years of Egyptian history with Gina by our side sharing her immense knowledge is worth every minute. The royal mummies collection is not to be missed. Our driver Kyrillos was also terrific. We were safe and sound in his capable hands as we drove around the chaotic traffic scene that is Cairo.

        We thoroughly our privatectour with Dina our guide and Mario our driver. She has a deep understanding of the history of the area, which made the experience come alive. The way she presented the places she took us, and in the order she presented them, gave us a real appreciation of Egypt and its place in history. After understanding my wife's passion for history Dina took us to some very historic churches.

        Baul, our driver, safely and quickly navigated the city.

        Highly recommend Dina and Baul as well as a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Civilization.

        I highly recommend this tour, especially if given by Gina Refky. She is a fantastic guide: very knowledgeable with excellent English. She is also a patient, kind and funny person. She made our tour quite worthwhile. She also took us to a few other places in addition to the NMEC, all of which were most enjoyable. We felt very safe in Gina’s capable hands! If you feel a bit intimidated about getting around Cairo but really want to visit the NMEC, book this tour!
