I've had the chance to be there during an holiday. That's just beautiful if you are interested in History. It's worth it to visit the war cemetery too, especially the Italian one, they are absolutely breathtaking.

We came here as part of a tour, but unfortunately it's closed due to security concerns.

We were able to go to the cemetery, but wish we could have visited. Suggest you check that it's open before trying to visit, but given its next to the cemetery, it's worth the trip regardless.

We have all heard of the battle of El Alamein, but it is hard to imagine the true sacrifice without visiting this lovingly tended CWGC cemetery. Marking the pivotal point when Britain began to believe that they could overcome Germany along with their allies, this was the result of Montgomery’s order ‘No retreat.’ Would that we were able to do as much in the future if the cause was right.We have all heard of the battle of El Alamein, but it is hard to imagine the true sacrifice without visiting this lovingly tended CWGC cemetery.

The museum is small and not high tech, but there is a tremendous amount to learn in this small, far corner of the world. It is amazing to stand in this dusty, little place thousands of miles from home and realize that it is connected with the US and Europe and other allies through war. Nearby land mines are still occasionally found. You come away with the long lasting and far reaching impact of war.

Visiting El Alamein Commonwealth War Cemetery, we had a perfect lesson about how WW2 was in the area. Couple of nice young military showed us a dynamic map of the troop movements during the desert war. Then our guide, Sahel from Egypt Tours Portal, told us about the weapons exposed inside and outside of the museum, about history and Egyptian soldiers. Outside, you can see and handle the old powered guns, even a plane.
Did you know … only one half of the old minefield was cleaned, the other half is still active and sometimes kills unlucky people …
