“The museum is open and worths a visit!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The museum includes some rooms of Cavafys house and some staff and books of the great poet. It is located in a narrow road at the centre of Alexandria! It is small but deserves a visit to see the place where the poet spent his last 25 years! As a Greek I enjoyed so much my visit to this place and I still remember the Egyptian responsible for the tickets who spoke greek and when we went he put a Cd with Elli Lampeti ( a famous Greek actress) intoning Cavafy poems!

Was a great place. Currently closed. Hope they open it soon. But would definitely recommend visiting this museum once reopened
