We always hear about how Egypt is home to a third of the world’s antiquities and ancient artifacts, but how many of us have actually seen them? We dream of visiting foreign countries, seeing all their beautiful artifacts and bearing witness to their culture and traditions, but dread how pricey and expensive such trips can be. Well, we have treasures right beneath our feet, and they’re just as marvelous as those abroad.

Next weekend, try to think a bit more about your country and what it has to offer. You don’t have to travel for miles on end for a journey through history, Cairo is filled with a whole lot of museums that offer different artifacts from different cultures, eras, epochs, and civilisations.

What’s even more special is that this weekend the Ministry of Antiquities has decided to open up all of Egypt’s museums and historical sites for free. Yes, you read that right, next Saturday, the 30th of June you can access a third of the world’s history for free. This is available for all Egyptians and Arabs with a residency in Egypt, and it comes as a celebration of the 30th of June Revolution.

So what are you waiting for? Check out the many amazing museums in Egypt and pick your favourite. You can have an awesome day, rich with culture and history without taking a long trip, or you can opt for a weekend trip and explore antiquities for free outside of Cairo. The choice is yours, but don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity.
