Inspiring Passion About Egypt’s Past
Explore Ancient Egypt with Us
Through inspiring lectures, engaging courses, travel, learning opportunities, discovery news – and enthralling online content. Our experts bring the endless wonder of Ancient Egypt alive for history buffs and the general public.

Egypt depends heavily on its tourism – its number one industry – which has taken a hit with the revolution and now the pandemic. We try to do our part.

It seems every week there’s news about another museum in Cairo Egypt.

Three millennia after the great civilization of Egypt began its rocky descent – though war, division and foreign rule, it shines again. So brightly. A harbinger of great things to come.
