Description

The history of Egypt is long, from the first settlements in the Nile Valley around 7000 years ago to the present day. Egypt was for a long period of time ruled by autocratic kings – the pharaohs. At other times, it was part

of larger empires such as the Persian, Roman and Ottoman.

The pharaonic culture was characterised by high conservatism.

Things were – and should be – as they always had been.

Old traditions and ways of thinking lived on, long after the last pharaohs.

They were present in the customs and traditions of the Middle Ages and are present in Egypt today.

Welcome on a walk through the history of Egypt!

Description
Upstairs, in interaction with the Baghdad Cafe, opened in February 2009, the upper gallery. A rich variety of objects retrieved from the museum's storerooms, many of them shown for the first time. A series of booths filled to the brim with beautiful vases functions as a traditional study collection of ancient ceramics.
