“Quirky museum fantastic place”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

With lack of real info and differing opening times we managed to visit Saturday 8th November . If you love taxidermy you'll love this museum lots to see ! There is a poultry room / sheep room / rabbit room , with its charts diagrams old wooden cases , lack of good light , you are thrown back to the 1950's , very vintage feel the waxworks are brilliant , lots of vintage photographs of Egypt communities , secret rooms and completely random stuff . Well worth the 8 Egyptian pounds 3 for entrance and 5 for taking photos !

“Interesting and Slightly Ridiculous Museum.... But So Much Fun”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This museum is great! It doesn't seem like it's been updated since it was created (which must have been the 50's) and there's no AC, but if you're in the right mood it can be a blast. I wouldn't recommend it for people only in Egypt on a short trip, but for those here for the long hall it can be fun. I went with friends and only spent about an hour there, but it was worth it (only 3 LE to get in!).

The museum is basically composed of stuffed animals in various (sometimes very odd) positions, signs that used to be colorful, and broken displays. If you're really into agricultural history you'll probably get something out of it. We just had fun looking at everything.

Only one building was open, but I've had friends who have been able to get someone to open up the other buildings. It was hot when we went though, so no one was around to ask. That one building was enough though.

“Unknown museum for many...”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

Excellent collections; buildings need refurbishment. Herbarium is a living Library and the staff very helpful (they have little to do), bring your 'research request' and they will find it for you. Gardens are beautiful but also need urgent landscaping refurbishments. A must.

“Enjoyable museum within a ministry compound”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

Not particularly easy to get into but once you get the opportunity it's a nice venue for Egypt's agricultural history on display.

“Past it's prime”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

The grounds, located at the foot of the 6th of October bridge, have long past their prime with only one floor, in one building out of 5 being open. The grounds, although extensive, are unkempt and buildings are in need of renovation. The 50's era architecture is interesting to see as well as a statue of an angel in the gardens, and the 50's era museum style really needs updating. On an unusual note, the curators in the museum will allow visitors to pose inside the displays with the mannequins and will even take your picture for you! At only EP3 to get in, and EP5 for camera, it is worth the price, if only to inject yourself into historical Egyptian scenes, or just to enjoy a picnic lunch in the grass in mid-town Cairo.
