Tel Al-Amarna Visitors Centre in Minya opens
... Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty inaugurated today the Tel Al-Amarna Visitors Centre. [...]
Eldamaty explained that the centre puts on show replicas of King Akhenaten's tomb, along with a collection of fully furnished palaces and houses of this distinguished era.
A collection of statues of King Akhenaten and his wife, Queen Nefertiti, are also on show, along with busts of their daughters. A three-metre tall statue of King Akhenaten is located in the centre's entrance gate, to welcome visitors.
Wadalla Abu El-Ela, head of the minstry's Projects Department, explained that the centre is 10,000 square metres large and was built at a cost of EGP 44 million. It consists of a display area, a service building, a cafeteria, a library and a parking lot.
During the opening ceremony, Eldamaty said that work on the Aten Museum and Malawi National Museum are at full swing, and that news to the contrary is false.
It was published today that the Aten Museum, which highlights the history of the King Akhenatun era and his capital, Akhtaten, was subject to encroachment and construction work stopped.
Similar claims were made on the Malawi National Museum...
