Two restored Tutankhamun statues will also be displayed in December; the statues had been damaged during the 2011 revolution, the ministry announced.

The airport museum opened in late October in the transit hall of Terminal 3 in an attempt to promote Egypt’s ailing tourism.

The museum opened with 38 artifacts, dating from several periods of the ancient Egyptian, Greco-Roman and Islamic eras.
