Moreover, it will be the very first of its kind and of this scale in the entire Arab world. Museum of a new kind, one of the NMEC’s main goal is to share knowledge and to connect with the surrounding Egyptian society as well as to offer international visitors a richer and a deeper insight of what Egyptian culture means throughout the ages.
