Egyptian heritage from home!

Explore some of Egypt's most unique heritage sites from the comfort of your home.

Now you can visit Egypt from the comfort of your home anywhere in the world, all you need is an internet connection and a computer (you can use your phone, or tablet too).

The following 3D virtual tours of monuments, museums, and archaeological sites around Egypt are collated from the fantastic work of Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in cooperation with the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology as well as the American Research Center in Egypt. Follow the links below to explore the sites and read a little bit more about the work of these organisations and what you could visit on your next trip to Egypt. 

The links are, roughly, listed in chronological order starting with the earliest monuments of Ancient Egypt, through to Egypt's Islamic age and museums. You'll find a lot more information from the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities too!
