The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization held a board meeting to discuss final preparations to receive the parade of royal mummies in the coming period.
The meeting was chaired by Tourism and Antiquities Minister Khaled El-Anani and was held at the museum’s headquarters in Cairo’s Fustat district.
During the meeting, the Board members agreed that the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board (ETPB) will launch the promotional campaign for the transfer of the royal mummies, which has been prepared in advance with the museum.
El-Anani also ordered that museum administrators organize free guided tours for Egyptian visitors and school trips inside the central exhibition hall of the museum after its opening.
Emphasis will be placed on the commitment to apply all precautionary measures and health security controls against the new coronavirus (COVID-19), which are applied in all museums and archaeological sites.
This takes into account social distancing during visits and ensures that the maximum number per visit is taken into account.
The list of all types of photographs in the museum has also been approved, according to the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
The museum’s board has also agreed to allow Egyptian, Arab and international media representatives to take photos inside the central exhibition hall for free for two days after the opening.
