Hello everyone,
Next semester I'm going to be studying abroad in Cairo, and obviously I plan on spending lots of time at the Egyptian Museum. Does anyone know if it is possible to become a member of the museum so I won't have to pay the same entry fee every time I go? Thanks very much!

I'm sure you could find the information you want on the museum's web page.

As far as I can tell the Museum doesn't have an official web page, other than a section on Egypt's tourism website. This lists the entry fees but does not mention membership. I've tried searching in Arabic, and still haven't had any luck finding an official website.

Since January 2008 they have a newsletter. Here is the impressum from Issue 7 - January - April 2010 :



I would try this : subscribing there and after that, asking the people from the newsletter by e-mail for the informations you need.

Greetings, Lutz.

That's very useful Lutz- thanks.

I often use the site Global Egyptian museum http://www.globalegyptianmuseum.org/, but the artifacts from Cairo are of limited number. Emailing the museum IS the best way to get ionformation on their collections- without a doubt.

Regards,
Stuart
