Egypt's Museum of Islamic Art is Set to Reopen After Two Years

Egypt's Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in downtown Cairo's Bab El-Khalq area is set to open its doors after two years of closure for restoration and repair. One hall showcases the daily life of Egyptians throughout the Islamic age, and the Museum features several exceptional collections including instruments, children’s toys, rare woodwork and plaster artefacts, as well as Islamic era metal, ceramic, glass, textile and crystal pieces from all over the world. The museum is housed in a two-story building, with the first floor open to visitors displaying 4,400 artefacts in 25 galleries.
