Alexandria’s Royal Jewelry Museum Houses Egypt’s Royal Heritage
Up until the 1952 revolution, the museum was used as a vacation residence for the royal family.
Found in Alexandria’s Zizinia neighbourhood, the Royal Jewelry Museum is home to an extensive collection of jewellery dating back to the Muhammad Ali dynasty.
Upon walking into the museum, its interiors are as striking as its collection, with the vivid ceilings adorned with oil paintings and colourful glass Europe-inspired artworks. The palace was originally built in 1919 by Princess Fatma’s mother to celebrate her 18th birthday. Up until the 1952 revolution, it was used as a vacation residence for the royal family. Since then, it has been renovated and reopened in 2010 as one of Alexandria’s go-to tourist attractions, preserving a glimmer of Egypt’s royal heritage.
The museum is open to the public every day from 9 AM to 5 PM, with tickets available at EGP 20 for adults and EGP 5 for students.
