After it was looted in August 2013, the ministry of antiquities has been working hard on restoring the recovered antiquities and rehabilitation of the museum building itself to even a better state than it was before the looting.
The following photos show the current view of the museum which is getting ready for the re-opening with a mix of the old collection and new objects telling the history of Minia governorate through the ancient Egyptian history.
Previous statement by the minister of antiquities Dr. Khalid El-Anany mentioned that the museum would be open in the second half of August (the current month).
The work is ongoing as the photos show Dr. Elham Salah (head of museums sector) at the museum working on the final displays with the museum team.
So, we are all awaiting for the re-opening soon.
