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.
Open daily, 9AM-4PM
TAXI: ask for “met-haf rashid”
