The prince expressed his fondness for the museum’s treasured collection which he recorded with photos.

Mamdouh Osman, the museum’s general director, guided the prince and the minister on the tour and explained the efforts of Egyptian workers to restore the artefacts, which were damaged in a 2014 bomb explosion at the Security Directorate.

Osman also described the achievements in restoration work in collaboration with the United Arab of Emirates since the museum's reopening last year.
