Housed in a villa
that belonged to Queen Farida (married to King
Farouk, r. 1936-1952), the Royal Jewelry Museum has a collection of royal
jewelry and medals.
In addition, it illustrates the excess of the
royal lifestyle, with lavish décor, jewel-encrusted garden tools,
and a gold chess set. Labels are in Arabic and English. The museum is
currently under renovation.
