Interesting museum with a number of pieces covering a long period (not just the Roman-Greek era but also earlier periods). Everything is well presented but it is a rather small museum. Still worth a visit.

There is some monuments worth to see, but they are not so many. One floor is the pharaohs time, one floor is the Romans time and one is the Islamic time.

Expensive for foreigners but worth the entrance fee. Great artifacts from Greco-Roman period with many things found from underwater excavation. Many things from Islamic and modern periods as well. Wonderful place to spend at least a couple of hours.
