"Al-Ahram Weekly" and "Egypt Independent" announce the inauguration of the Museum in Sohag by President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi next week - 25 years after the construction started.

It began in 1993, then financial and technical problems leading to an interruption. In 2006, work continued until it came to a standstill as a result of the 2011 revolution. In 2016, the army took responsibility for completing the museum.

With 8,000 m² of exhibition space, the Sohag National Museum is one of the "big names" in Upper Egypt in the future. The focus of the exhibition is on the archaeological sites around Sohag. These include, for example, Abydos, Athribis and Akhmin.

Greetings, Lutz.
