Description

Established in 1991, the Taha Hussein Museum is an ode to the man himself. One of Egypt's most influential persons of the 20th Century, Dr. Taha Hussein wrote over 50 books on the country’s socio-political affairs. Despite being visually-impaired, his remarkable contribution to Arab culture is of great significance. Visit his study, meeting rooms and library, and browse through 7000 books and music records on display, as well as his medal collection. A statue of Hussein punctuates the garden outside.
