The Coptic Museum Reviews & Ratings
Not very interesting. 100 Egyptian pounds entry fee, and very forgettable. Spend just 60 pounds more and go to the Egyptian Museum... So interesting that you could spend the entire day and not get bored. Nearby the Coptic Museum are some interesting churches. Near metro station
Very well maintained and organized museum. Depicts a very important part of the history of Cairo and the Christianity itself. It's worth visiting.
The collection is quite interesting. However the explanations are very poor. The museum itself is worth visiting for its rooms and peaceful environment
I went there as part of my study excursion and I was not very impressed by the museum. The lighting is bad and display is boring. The labels are old and dusty and the bigger information panels are repetitive. They can definitely improve the display of objects and the lighting. But I give full points to the building. Its a nice building with beautiful wooden ceilings (don't forget to look up). And the collection is very unique.
Christianity from the Egyptian point of view. Beautiful art and devoted services, open to all, incense wafting throughout. Never expected Christianity was so important in Cairo
