Mr & Mrs Mahmoud Khalil Museum information
This museum was closed for renovation at the time of research, but if it has reopened, definitely make the trek, even if you didn’t come to Egypt to see 19th- and 20th-century European and Japanese art. In fact, Mahmoud and the missus, Emiline Lock, hobnobbed with European artists at the turn of the last century and amassed an impressive collection: Delacroix, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Monet and more. The museum is just a few minutes’ walk south from the Cairo Sheraton.
