The number of visitors to museums around Egypt in the last week of July reached 32,497, with an income totaling EGP 745,533 ($84,431), the secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities announced.

Mostafa Amin also said that the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir received the most visitors, at 17,206, while revenues reached EGP 624,101 ($70,679).

"This indicates that the number of visitors to Egypt has increased which in turn suggests that the tourism industry in Egypt is on its way to recovery," Amin told Ahram Online.
