Newly Opened National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation

The National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC) opened its doors a week ago in Al Fustat (ancient Cairo). NMEC houses 50, 000 objects that illustrate the history of Egyptian civilisation–from Prehistory to the present day.

Stunning photos have recently been published and the one above is my favourite. (Love the abstracted pylon-like structures that incorporate inverted pyramid light fixtures!)
