Nevine El-Aref , Sunday 24 Jun 2018

To mark the Ministry of Antiquities’ celebration of the 5th anniversary of the 30 June revolution, all museums and archaeological sites in Egypt will be open to the public free of charge on Saturday.

Mostafa Waziri, the secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said that the free visit would be for Egyptians as well as Arabs and foreigners who are residents in Cairo.

The visitors will be provided with free guided tours in Arabic and English.

Waziri explained this decision comes from the ministry's belief in the importance of allowing citizens to take part in all public events and national celebrations.
