This museum, contrary to popular belief, is OPEN. (Our hotel reception thought otherwise.) It is beautifully arranged, with lots of light and a well-curated collection. The right wing goes by period and the left by type of object. The art is really beautiful and presents a wide range of historical objets d'art. Every object placard is in English and Arabic, and the English was very well-translated. Most rooms also have an English-Arabic-French introductory placard. Some placards have more Arabic explanatory text underneath, but not so much that I felt left out as a non-speaker. I only wish there were more textiles - only two rooms!
The cost for foreigners is 50LE (25LE for students). Our visit took about an hour, and you have to check tour camera at the entry.
