Overlooking Ain El-Seira Lake, the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization is located on El-Fustat archaeological site in Old Cairo. The NMEC is known to be the first authentic museum of civilization in Egypt. 50,000 artefacts from the dawn of civilization to the present day are going to be displayed in the museum's six main galleries. The project forms part of UNESCO's efforts for safeguarding and preserving Egypt's cultural heritage. For this reason, the UNESCO is providing support to the NMEC in training, exhibition development and other areas. It is expected that the project will allow greater number of people to be educated more about the Egyptian civilization and serve as a forum for open dialogue, debate and exchange of ideas. In addition, the museum is planned to include an auditorium, an education & research center and an exhibition on the expansion of the modern city of Cairo. It will act as a venue which highlights Egypt's tangible and intangible heritage. In February 2017, the museum was partly opened and the first exhibition under the name "Crafts and Industries through the Ages" was displayed to the public. Using modern techniques and multimedia electronic guides, the exhibition brings back to life the development of four gorgeous Egyptian crafts which are: clay, jewelry, textiles and wood. As it is still not completely opened, it is highly recommended to explore the NMEC in a guided tour!
