This is a museum at Abdeen Palace that has a wonderful collection of gifts that were given by different rulers in the world to the Egyptian royal family as well as some of their belongings like an amazing silverware collection and dinnerware which I fell in love with. It was an extraordinary experience to walk through the gate of this beautiful palace into the amazing spacious gardens and look at the palace, which is not open to the public right now, looking forward to visit it one day, you can only visit the museum that you should not miss, loved the golden sword that was gifted by King AbdulAziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia to king Fuad the first. I hope that all the Egyptian palaces gets renovated and opened to the public.

This is a very interesting site, that holds an extensive collection of arms. Also on display are the silverware and other items of luxury of the former royal family of Egypt. Finally, there are also the gifts and decorations received by the leaders of Egypt.

A friend recommended visiting the Palace. Impressive grounds but what really made the experience special was the free tour of the palace. It was a pleasant surprise when we were informed that a free tour was about to start. The gentleman was a great storyteller made the palace com to life.

This museum in my opinion is a top priority to visit while in Cairo. Everything about it is just classy, well maintained and preserved. There is a lot of history about this place and a vast collection of the last dynasty in Egypt as well. The collections includes weapons, documents, gifts, antiques and many more. Totally worth your time, you won't be disappointed.
