The Greco-Roman Museum, founded in 1892, has a priceless collection of approximately 40,000 objects, including sculpture, mosaics, woodwork, and coins. The museum tells the story of how Graeco-Roman culture melded with Egyptian influences after the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great in 332 BC. Currently under restoration, the museum is scheduled to reopen in 2010.
