The previous photo reports, made by the members of ISIDA research group while visiting the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities were published in 2012 and in 2016. In 2012 we have published only some of the items, located in front of the museum building. In 2016, when the Ministry of Antiquities allowed an internal photography, we have made some photos of the unique objects inside the building. After visiting the museum in 2017, we would like to introduce to your attention some more photos of artifacts, exhibited in the halls of one of the most great museums of the World.
Expedition to Egypt (March-April 2017) WEST THEBES. Mortuary Temple of Seti I.
He made it as his monument for his father, Amon- Re, Lord of Thebes, of Karnak,
making for him a Great Palace, an august Holy of Holies, for the Divine Ennead,
a place of rest for the Lord of the Gods at his beautiful feast of the valley;

Expedition to Egypt (March-April 2017) ASWAN: Monastery of St. Simeon.
The ruins of the old Christian monastery, the largest ancient Coptic architecture complex in Egypt, known as the monastery of St. Simeon, are located in the Aswan desert, in 700 meters from the west bank of the Nile, opposite to the island of Elephantine.

Expedition to Egypt (March-April 2017) MEDINET HABU: Mortuary temple of Ramesses III.
Medinet Habu is a small village in the Western Thebes. According to ancient legend, it was the place where the god Amon appeared to the World for the first time. The sacred significance of this place subsequently prompted Ramesses III - the Pharaoh of the XX Dynasty to choose it for the construction of his own Mortuary Temple.
The reign of Ramesses III (1185 to 1153 BC) was the last period of prosperity of the great Egyptian Empire during the New Kingdom.

Expedition to Egypt (March-April 2017) WEST THEBES: Mortuary temple of Hatshepsut.
My heart rushes back and forth, thinking what people will say -
those who will see the monuments, I created. After the years passed by they will talk about what I did ...
Do not say it's my boast, say:
"It her's (her Majesty Hatshepsut), how she is worthy her father (God Amon)!"
Translation from Ancient Egyptian, carved on the obelisk of Hatshepsut in the Karnak Temple
