New museum in Rosetta (State Information Service)
"In the coming few days, the Rosetta National museum will be inaugurated. It will be one of the most impressive museums in Egypt, enjoying a wonderful location near the River Nile. The museum is surrounded by about 50 beautiful old houses. In fact the Rosetta National Museum is located in Arab Kulli House, which is being comprehensively developed and restored. The Supreme Council of Antiquities Secretary-General Zahi Hawass stated that, in collaboration with the Rosetta (Rashid) City Council, two feddans of land have been annexed to Arab Kulli House, where a park and a centre for visitors will be created."
