Das Koptische Museum, gegründet von Marcus Simaika Pascha im Jahr 1908, ist ein Museum in Ägyptens Hauptstadt Kairo. Die gesammelten Exponate aus dem Kulturkreis der Kopten sind auf zwei Etagen eines Museumsneubaus ausgestellt. Es handelt sich um die größte Sammlung von koptischen christlichen Artefakten aus aller Welt, die jährlich von rund einer Million Menschen besucht wird.
Das Koptische Museum befindet sich im Koptischen Viertel von Kairo auf dem Gelände der historischen römischen Festung Babylon. An Straßen rund um das Museumsgelände stehen sechs historische koptische Kirchen, darunter die bekannte hängende Kirche.

One of the best museums I’ve seen in Cairo so far. Curated in very meaningful ways and contains wonderful specimens, including the world’s oldest Psalms. The interior itself is also quite beautiful. The museum gives you real perspective on Coptic history before you visit the rest of the multi-religious compound.

Beautiful, well-curated museum, which provides a wealth of information on Coptic history. It's even better when visited with a knowledgeable guide. Easy to reach via metro. It's at the Mar Girgis metro stop. And easy to combine with a visit to the Coptic Cairo area, to see the Hanging Church and other sights.

It's very amazing museum that has a lot of relics from the third century and up. But It needs to provide tours for visitors

A good museum depicting arts of the Coptic period. There’s an entry ticket only to the museum, all other churches, the synagogue, structures around are free to visit and are indeed beautiful. Once you have been to all these places, the Coptic museum would simply feel as if an organised collection of intellectual art. If you are really an art connoisseur, then try it out, else one may choose to give it a skip.

A very amazing experience. Being able to walk into a church that dates hundreds of years back it was a fantastic experience. Also being able to see the artifacts that they have preserved was also delightful

Over hyped. Ambience is good. May be for a fan of Egyptian Coptic history. No historical narrative or context of exhibits. It is an assorted collection of artifacts. No need to compare with Egyptian museum. The security staff were rude. Persons maintaining wash rooms were practically abusive.

A very nice museum , photography is allowed with photography ticket only , very big museum of 2 levels divided into 26 halls that show the details of the coptic life upon time 👍👍

This place had the maximum security for its history with police and armed military men surrounded. But worth a visit for history

In 1908, after receiving approval and a number of silver antiquities from Patriarch Cyril V and raising funds by public subscription, Marcus Simaika Pasha built the Coptic Museum and inaugurated it on 14 March 1910. The Coptic community was generous in their support of the museum, donating many vestments, frescoes, and icons. In 1931 the Coptic Museum became a state museum, under the jurisdiction of the Department of Antiquities, and in 1939 the collection of Christian antiquities in the Egyptian Museum was moved there. These were housed in the New Wing, completed in 1944. Because of damage, the Old Wing was closed in 1966, and the entire museum was renovated between 1983 and 1984. The foundations of the museum were strengthened and reinforced between 1986 and 1988, which helped the museum survive the 1992 earthquake. Further renovations took place in 2005-06. Marcus Simaika Pasha was followed by Dr Togo Mina and then by Dr Pahor Labib, the first to have the title of Director of the Coptic Museum. Besides the museum buildings, there are gardens and courtyards and the area is surrounded by old Coptic churches. There are six churches, some which have origins as early as the 5th century AD. These old edifices include the (Hanging church) of the Virgin Mary and the church of St. Sergius.
