National Museum of Egyptian Civilization plans to install Audio Tour Guide System

by nevine

The use of audio guides at Egypt’s National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) was granted permission during the board’s meeting held at the museum’s headquarters in Fustat.

The audio-guided tours will be introduced at the NMEC’s Royal Mummies Hall. Currently, due to the limited space, traditional tour guides are discouraged in the room for preserving mummies.

Thus, the new format for visits avoids the problems that might arise from excessive traffic in the room, with the presence of conventional guided tours.

The launch of the new gallery tour format will be announced next month, according to the Egyptian Streets.

During the board meeting, Managing Executive Director of the NMEC, Ahmed Ghoneim addressed several key issues, including an overview of the events that have taken place in the museum in recent months.

After the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, the Royal Mummies Hall at the NMEC, is home to 20 mummies from the 17th to 20th dynasties with Hatshepsut, a ruling queen from the 18th dynasty — along with various Ramesside rulers — being the most famous among them.

Considered one of the museum’s main attractions, the Royal Mummies Hall is equipped with special facilities to maintain temperature and humidity levels in order to preserve mummies.
