"Little is known about a major museum being built in the center of Cairo that is meant to be Egypt’s first comprehensive national museum. The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is supported by UNESCO and was among the major cultural projects adopted by the former regime such as the Grand Egyptian Museum and the Nubia Museum [...] It was set to open in September 2011. Needless to say, the opening date has been delayed. Even still, this project initiated over twenty years ago remains shrouded in mystery even as it nears completion".
