Egypt: The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has shared the list of the national museums and selected artefacts to be displayed for July 2023. The showcasing is a part of the monthly tradition of Egyptian museums across the country; museums chose the pieces of July through a public vote on their Facebook social media pages.
Professor Mo’men Othman, head of the Supreme Council for Archaeology museum sector, explained that this tradition comes within the framework of museums’ role as cultural and educational institutions that raise tourism and archaeological awareness among all levels of society.
In addition, many audiences have signed on to a collection of old photographs from the museum archives, representing museums in previous periods, in conjunction with World Archive Day, which falls on 9 June each year.
At the same time, it highlights a distinctive collection of archival images found in Egyptian museums. It highlights their role in Inspiration and action in preserving and protecting the nation’s memory and our civilization.
