Mahmoud Mukhtar Museum information
Mukhtar (1891–1934) was the sculptor laureate of independent Egypt, responsible for Saad Zaghloul on the nearby roundabout and the Egypt Reawakening monument outside the Giza Zoo. Collected in this elegant, little-visited museum, his work ranges from tiny caricatures (look for Ibn al-Balad, a spunky city kid) to life-size portraits. Mukhtar’s tomb sits in the basement.
The museum also houses some interesting temporary exhibitions.
