From early December until 7 January, visitors to the Egyptian Museum in central Cairo have been allowed to take pictures with cameras and mobile phones without paying any fees

Previously, visitors were not allowed to take cameras into the museum unless they paid a fee, and mobile phone photography was not allowed.

Museum's general supervisor Khaled El-Anani pointed out that three artifacts that have recently been recovered from overseas will be on display in the museum for the first time.
