  • If you are considering a trip to Alexandria, no, in fact Egypt - this is a must see! This museum should be THE NO. 1 best destination in Egypt, no, the northern hemisphere! I truly cannot believe it.....  more »

  • Great place for all family members Scientific place Educational place You will be happy to sea different types of fishes and to discover the deep sea world Its really adorable Kids enjoyed to the max
  • An average small and cheap aquarium 10EGP. Each tank in the aquarium can be seen by 3-4 people at once so if its crowded you wont enjoy your time, the most interesting tank was the turtles and crocodiles. I wouldn't recommend someone to specifically go to this place as there are more other places worth seeing.
