The Museum will be open

Tour of St. Mark’s historic Church from the Museum included! The Museum will be launching its recently acquired stamp collection featuring:
(1)The history of Egypt’s postal system from the very first stamp that was issued in 1866 to 1953; and
(2)a selection of stunning gold leaf stamps from a Collector’s Catalogue of stamps issued at the British Museum’s “Treasures of Tutankhmun” 1972 exhibition. Each stamp is expertly engraved with one of King Tut’s “treasurers”.
