What does the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization deal with and what will be presented to the public at the time of its opening scheduled for this year 2020 after the transfer of the royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to its permanent location in the Museum of Civilization, and for this we contacted Dr. Ahmed Ghoneim, Chairman of the Executive Authority of the Museum of Civilization.
Dr. Ahmed Ghoneim said, The museum highlights aspects of the Egyptian material and moral heritage and the impact of the Egyptian civilization on other civilizations that arose and flourished on an infrastructure of science and knowledge, thanks to the Egyptian civilization.
Dr. Ahmed Ghoneim explained, in exclusive statements to "The Seventh Day," that the Civilization Museum deals with the intangible heritage, focusing on living habits, arts and crafts that the Egyptians used and still practice, and according to future visions of the remaining stages, which we are about to study, we achieve one of the most important goals of the museum, which is communication between visitors. It lays out the connotations of Egyptian civilization, represented by what can be added to the museum’s elements such as centers for industries, handicrafts and traditional arts, as well as exhibitions in which the products of these industries, crafts and arts are displayed, as well as the archaeological gardens planned to be implemented and also benefit from all that the surrounding environment provides, such as the unique characteristics of the lake And its effective impact in curing many diseases, and finally in the presence of real archaeological sites within and around the project's boundaries.
Dr. Ahmed Ghoneim added, the museum thus represents a new type of museums that goes far beyond the traditional museums in which the treasures and monuments are displayed for visitors to Egypt and others to see, so the most important goal of this museum is for everyone to share knowledge and communicate with the surrounding Egyptian environment and the archaeological and historical sites in and around the museum, as well as It allows visitors to get to know more about the Egyptian civilization and the cultures, sciences, values and arts it has contained throughout the ages, and thus the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization is considered a pioneering museum that provides a new vision of the heritage, preserves it and makes it alive, interacting with its visitors and influencing them.
