The rams were uncovered in Tahrir Square and the whole square and the surrounding buildings were illuminated with light shows. After the completion of the entire Tahrir Square area, and currently, the square is preparing for the passage of the kings and queens of ancient Egypt in a legendary procession within days.

Be ready for the historical event

A parade of 22 kings and queens with the participation of ancient Egyptian-style war wheels that were manufactured in Egypt and the pure Arab horses will be dragged by the Republican Guard teams with the firing of bullets and military parades to celebrate them and have a specific route through which the most famous historical places of Egypt will be transferred. Through major satellite channels all over the world ... Today, they will be very special and will announce surprises and international art shows.

The procession will be for the kings:

Skanan Ra - Tuthmosis I - Ahmose Nefertari - Amenhotep I - Tuthmosis II - Queen Hatshepsut - Thutmose III - Amenhotep II - Thutmose IV - Amenhotep III - Ramses II - Merneptah - Seti II - Siptah - Ramses IV - Ramses V - Ramses IX - City I.

A question that will occur to all of us:

Why are kings and queens not displayed in the Grand Egyptian Museum? And we collect all the relics there in one place?

Simply, because we are doing a complete redistribution of tourism to Egypt, and every inch there is a tourist share.

for that :

 I: We have developed the Egyptian Museum, Tahrir Square, and the downtown area in full development now in all its fields with the same approach as Tahrir Square, and we left the Egyptian Museum in very rare tourist pieces to be a tourist attraction for Les and the Cairo Tower and the entire surrounding area (Downtown).

 II: We developed Lake Ain Al-Sira and transformed it from a neglected and swampy place for diseases and filth into a literal paradise. We built the Museum of Civilization on Lake Ain Al-Sira and transferred it to the kings of Egypt and other distinctive artefacts, as well as developing the wall of the El-Ayoun stream and the entire ancient region of Egypt. All the neighbouring monuments to it and the most important of them is the Citadel of Saladin and the Islamic monuments ... etc.

In addition to the benefit to the residents of this particular area, which was previously listed as dangerous slums. It will be completely demolished and the whole area will plan and build alternative housing in the Islamic style like the Middle Ages. An international hotel will also be built on the same model.

 III: We built the Grand Egyptian Museum, which is the largest in the world, and we will develop the entire pyramids area and make a cable car linking the pyramid area with the museum, a global tourist walkway, a very modern system for entry, and a very large horse riding area, and also, we will distinguish the Grand Egyptian Museum with all of Tutankhamun’s relics and many other relics exposed for the first time A completely different time, and the view will take you on a journey through the time of the Pharaohs.

National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat

It is located in front of Lake Ain Al-Sira (the area de Halba is fully developed and remains a mythical need) in the heart of the historical city of Fustat in the ancient Cairo area of ​​Cairo, meters away from the National Archives and the Religions Complex, as it overlooks Ain Al-Sira Lake, it is one of the largest and largest museums In the world, where its area reaches more than 140 thousand square meters, and thus accommodates nearly 50 thousand artefacts telling the stages of the development of Egyptian civilization, from the earliest times until the modern era.

The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, the idea of ​​which goes back to UNESCO, when it announced an international campaign to establish it in 1982, is the first museum to be devoted to the entirety of Egyptian civilization, as its archaeological pieces will tell the stages of the development of Egyptian civilization, and it includes seven different exhibitions, the most important of which is the permanent main exhibition, Which will display the most important achievements of Egyptian civilization, in addition to six other exhibitions dealing with topics: civilization, the Nile, writing, state and society, culture, beliefs, and ideas, in addition to an exhibition of royal mummies.

The museum, which laid the foundation stone for it in 2002, is distinguished by its luxury and breadth, the luxury that the visitor feels as soon as he steps into that long entrance surrounded on the sides by huge columns, which crosses it down to the temporary exhibition hall, which displays many Egyptian industries throughout the ages, Such as pottery, textiles, fashion, gold and silver jewellery, and these industries show the extent of the development of pottery and glass crafts in ancient, middle and modern Egypt, so inside the lobby there are many models of the Egyptian manufacturer, in the various professions in which he worked professionally, next to him is some wooden tools and chairs on which he was sitting. In addition to many ceramic vessels, murals, and doors, which confirm the craftsmanship of the Egyptian manufacturer.

Also inside the lobby is one of the rarest Egyptian antiquities at all, which is the coffin of the priest Najm Ankh, returning from the United States of America, after Egypt recovered it from among the recovered antiquities, and dates back to the first century BC, when Egypt was ruled by the Ptolemaic dynasty, He was a high priest of the god "Hershef" in the city of Heracleopolis and is located in the centre of Ahnasia in the province of Beni Surf now.

The Museum of Egyptian Civilization is one of the most important axes for the development of the archaeological "Al-Fustat" region, which is the first capital of Islamic Egypt. Therefore, Ain Al-Sira Lake, which has an area of ​​more than 2 million square meters, was developed, and from inside the museum you can see many buildings. The nearby archaeology, on top of those buildings, is the Muhammad Ali Pasha Castle, and the interior exhibitions of the museum were designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, while Dr Al-Ghazali Qusaybah, professor of architecture at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo, obtained the right of architectural advice.

According to the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, the Museum of Egyptian Civilization is scheduled to receive the mummies of some of the great Egyptian kings, and the number 22 mummies, headed by Ramses II, Amenhotep II, and Merenptah, provided that this will be done in early 2021, to be placed in the mummies hall in the basement, and it also includes The museum also works for restoration, and two sarcophagi belonging to the sarcophagus of "Sagem", the foreman of King "Seti the First" and his wife, who is one of the great priests of the New Kingdom era, who belongs to the 19th family, and the two sarcophagi are made of wood in a human form, and they have colourful decorations Inside each of them, there is a mummy of the deceased in a good state of preservation.

In 2017 AD, the museum was partially inaugurated, as the temporary exhibition hall, which covers an area of ​​about one thousand square meters, was opened and includes a temporary exhibition entitled "Egyptian crafts and industries through the ages", which includes about 420 artefacts selected from some museums, and many models In addition to large screens displaying several documentary films dealing with the history of each craft and its development through the ages, the museum also includes a hall and a centre for education and research, as well as an exhibition related to the development of the city of Cairo, and it will serve as a place for a variety of events, displaying three-dimensional scientific videos, conferences, and lectures. And cultural activities, and will target local, national, and international audiences.

Currently, the "central exhibition" hall is being constructed, which will tell a summary of the Egyptian civilization from prehistory to the modern era, and it is located on an area of ​​2500 square meters and provides a presentation of the Egyptian civilization through artefacts and models, and "multimedia" display screens and graphic panels, as well. The "Capital Museum" hall, which relies mainly on "multimedia", is being implemented and provides an archaeological display of the Egyptian capital through different eras, as it displays pictures and models of ancient Egyptian capitals, ranging from Tennessee and Menf to Herceliopolis, Thebes, Litjtawi, Khasot, Avaris, Akhetatoun, Bar-Ramesistanis, Popastis, and Sais, Through Alexandria, Fustat, Askar, Al-Qata`, and finally Cairo, through "multimedia" devices, and several documentaries, as well as showing the floor of the hall Maquette explaining the idea of ​​the capital and its relationship with the geography of Egypt.

As for the glass pyramid above the Museum of Civilization, the museum's administration has not yet determined how it will be used, as some suggest using it as a panoramic hotel that allows its guests to see the archaeological buildings surrounding it, while others suggest leaving it as a panoramic exhibition overlooking Old Cairo, as the museum is located in the middle of the first suburb It was established in Cairo 1400 years ago.
