The Siwa House Museum is located in the heart of Siwa Oasis. It was built in the style of the old Siwa House to narrate the history of the city and how its inhabitants lived in the past. The museum was built using traditional building techniques for the people of Siwa. Karshif was used for construction, which is a mixture of sun-dried rock salt and mud, and this material preserves At moderate temperatures indoors, the ceiling was made of palm wood The museum displays handicrafts, traditional clothing, pottery, silverware, and much more.

This is 1 of the attractions in this small oasis. The ruins are quite intact except for some wear and tear but i would suggest to come hee with a guide. if not, you will not be able to appreciate the place without some history on it.

It's definitely worth visiting. German archaeologists were working on it for some time now, it should be in a better shape than when I visited the place.

It is impressive to see this part of Egypt & know more about the culture. I was surprised even though I'm Egyptian but the culture is little different or we can say unique. They also speak the Amazeigh language but thank God they speak arabic too :) but Siwean people are very generous & the culture is rich indeed.

It gives you information on how the people in Siwa used to live (and still) and you can see their instruments and rooms as if it is a live show of the interesting life style of the people of this place.And it will make you understand more the culture of the oasis and explains a lot of things you see during your visit. Worth a visit.

We spend a great time to enjoy Siwa's heritage and traditional house arranging by Walid's company. It's amazing that Siwa is more peaceful, quiet and relaxing place compare to Cairo. It's really a good place to relax and enjoy apart from the city. We have professional tour guide Hazen and driver who drive us across desert. We have also excellent time to stay in Siwa Garden hotel which is clean and comfortable. My wife and me enjoy a lot in Siwa. A big thanks to Walid's company arrangement and those nice people in Siwa as well.
