Summary

Minister of Antiquities (MoA) is planning to build an underwater antiquities museum in Alexandria, Egypt.

The project involves the construction of an underwater antiquities museum. It includes the construction of four tall underwater buildings in the form of Nile boats connected to one another on a 22,000m2 area, glass submarines and parking facilities, and the installation of safety and security systems.

The museum will consist of two parts, one part above the water surface and another part underwater.

Jacques Rougerie Foundation has been appointed as architect for the project. A feasibility study was carried out by the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology.

On May 27, 2010, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) and the Egyptian authorities planned to start the project immediately, but work was halted due to the January 25 revolution in 2011.

In September 2015, the Egyptian Minister of Antiquities announced that the government had revived its plans.

Planning activities are underway.
