 Bibliotheca of Alexandria

 

The Library of Alexandria is the most famous library of Classical antiquity. It formed part of the research institute at Alexandria in Egypt that is known as the Alexandrian Museum.

A reimagining of Alexandria's ancient Great Library, The Library of Alexandria is a gorgeously designed cultural center contains a host of museums as well as one of the modern world's most ambitious libraries, and it has to be visited during Egypt Day ToursIts architecture - a giant sun disk - presides over the waterfront Corniche, while inside, a huge reading room can hold eight million volumes. Below the main library, visitors can explore a range of beautifully curated exhibitions. The Manuscript Museum with its magnificent collection of ancient texts and scrolls and the Antiquities Museum with its Graeco-Roman antiquities and statuary found during underwater exploration in the harbor are the two prime attractions. But there are also rotating art exhibitions, a permanent Egyptian folk art collection, and a Science Museum and Planetarium that are aimed squarely at children.
