The Rashid Museum
 
 
 

 


  

The Rashid Museum was built to preserve objects related to the history of Rashid (Rosetta). While Rashid is best-known as the place where the Rosetta Stone, the key to cracking the hieroglyphic code, was found, the town was also Egypt’s most important port during the 17th and 18th centuries. Labels are in Arabic and English.
