Amazing Museum May 31, 2011
The Egyptian authorities have decided to collect the largest collection of subjects of culture and a life of Ancient Egypt in one museum.

At present the Egyptian museum has the richest collection of treasures of the Egyptian culture which are collected in more hundreds halls. The museum has about 150 thousand exhibits. I visited the halls of the Hermitage devoted to ancient Egypt. The Hermitage is the keeper of very big collection of exhibits of ancient Egypt. At us even schoolboys necessarily visit the Hermitage when study history of Egypt.

About 20 years ago the Egyptian government brought an exhibition to St.-Petersburg in which treasures from a tomb of Tutankhamun entered. But when I have got to the Egyptian national museum, I have been simply amazed by quantity of exhibits. The gold sarcophagus of Tutankhamun is powerful 450 pounds of pure gold, a gold mask of the Pharaoh, a hall of mummies, the collections devoted by Tutmos III have simply stunned. Here it is possible - to wander hours in the days, without wishing to leave its walls without having examined all its halls. Has amazed with what love, guides and employees of a museum (the Government of Egypt) concern exhibits and history of Egypt.
