Since its opening in 2014, the Egyptian Museum in Mississauga has been an attraction for all those who are looking for enjoying the great Egyptian civilization, which is one of the oldest civilizations in the old world.

For almost 30 centuries—from its unification around 3100 B.C. to its conquest by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C.—ancient Egypt was the preeminent civilization in the Mediterranean world. From the great pyramids of the Old Kingdom through the military conquests of the New Kingdom, Egypt’s majesty has long entranced archaeologists and historians and created a vibrant field of study all its own: Egyptology. The main sources of information about ancient Egypt are the many monuments, objects, and artifacts that have been recovered from archaeological sites, covered with hieroglyphs that have only recently been deciphered. The picture that emerges is of a culture with few equals in the beauty of its art, the accomplishment of its architecture, or the richness of its religious traditions.

The museum is located in Mississauga at 6341 Mississauga Rd, Entrance B. And it is open to the public by appointment only.

Museum Director, Ihab Bakhit, told Media in Toronto that the museum was started about seven years ago by a number of enthusiastic Egyptians to show the great Egyptian history to the Canadian people, adding that the main objectives of establishing the museum are to display Egyptian civilization and history in Canada, besides that Canada encourages All immigrants to preserve their identity and their mother culture while integrating with the Canadian civilization, showing sons of the second and third generation of Egyptian immigrants the history and civilization of their ancestors, especially those who did not have the opportunity to witness the wonders of this great civilization in Egypt, and finally is that this museum becomes an educational center for all who wants to study Egyptian history and civilization.

Bakhit explained also the idea of establishing the museum and explained that it contains imitation pieces of Egyptian antiquities.

The main attraction of the Museum is the identical replicas of King Tutankhamun’s treasures. His tomb treasures in addition to various pieces from different dynasties of Ancient Egypt and Coptic antiquities.

The museum also has a collection of Coptic Antiquities. Coptic Egypt used the indigenous Coptic language for religious matters. In the arts, Coptic Egypt is famous for its elaborately decorated textiles that are preserved in many collections.

The Egyptian Museum has made Mississauga one of the Canadian hubs for Pharaonic and Coptic history and a must-visit place for Canadians. The Museum and The Cultural Centre aim at taking grasp of the diversity of Egypt’s heritage of monuments and arts needed to be shown in one place in one location to maintain and preserve this huge legacy.

The public has also the advantage of buying collections of items, these items are made of high quality and close to the real ones. The history of ancient Egyptian culture is perhaps one of the most fascinating and keenly studied of all time. From fascinating gods to the mysteries of hieroglyphics.

Tickets to this museum are currently 50% off and being offered at the discounted rate of $10. Children under the age of six can enter the museum for free!
