  • To visit this museum at least 2 times. There is a collection of sion ceramics from the Isis civilization. The building itself is a piece of art. It's a converted private villa. There is a beautiful flower, located in an open corner of the west. There are also sculptures in the flowers. The museum is being refurbished.

  • This museum houses an excellent collection of ceramics from Islamic civilizations in an exquisite building which is a work of art in and of itself. One of the better kept secrets of Cairo, the museum is set in a lovely garden which is a much welcomed retreat far from the maddening crowd and my favorite spot in the whole of Egypt.
  • Amazing place and lovely ceramics art
