Mahmoud El-Halwagy, director general of the museum, told Ahram Online that the celebration aims to increase cultural awareness among children through organising workshops about the importance and magnitude of ancient Egyptian civilization.

Workshops for blind, deaf and mute children will be held, as well as tours of the museum.
