We visited from Alexandria, using a private car to visit the German, Italian and Commonwealth Cemeteries in turn before finishing here. This was useful as the curator at the German cemetery, Moniem, spoke excellent English and helped our driver to follow the best route around....More

This museum is certainly worth visiting after the commonwealth cemetery. Split into four sections German, Italian, Egyptian, and Britain with the countries of the Commonwealth.

This place could have been so much better than it was. Little evidence that the place has been upgraded/ decorated/ modernised in the past 20 years. Old display cases, noddy-written notices. Halls are organised by nationality. However you get a good idea of the various...More
