Museum of Modern Egyptian Art information
This vast collection of 20th- and 21st-century Egyptian art is set in the green, well-groomed Gezira Exhibition Grounds, across from the Cairo Opera House. The museum’s highlights are Mahmoud Mukhtar’s deco-elegant bronze Bride of the Nile , along with Mahmoud Said’s painting Al Madina (The City, 1937). The museum was closed for maintenance at the time of research. Nearby are the Hanager Arts Centre and the Palace of arts, all closed for maintenance.
