The renovated Egyptian Railway Museum was inaugurated on Tuesday after the completion of a modernisation project at the cost of EGP 10 million.

The Railway Museum, which is located in the Ramsis Square Railway station in downtown Cairo, was founded in 1933 to celebrate the International Railway Conference held in Cairo that year.

It was the first of its kind in the Middle East and the second national railway museum after the British Railway Museum.

The Egyptian railway system, which started in 1854, is one of the oldest in the world.
