Museums and palaces

Former royal palace Montazah, built by the last Khedive of Egypt in 1892, is set in gardens used occasionally for concerts and theatre performances in summer. The former palace of Fatma el-Zahara
is now the Royal Jewellery Museum and contains a collection of gems from the 19th century dynasty of Mohamed Ali. While little of ancient Alexandria survives, relics from the period from the 3rd century BC to the 7th century AD chronicle the city’s heyday in the Graeco-Roman Museum. The Museum of Fine Arts contains a collection of architectural pieces, art and sculptures.
