Egyptian Museum Cairo was first built in Boulak. After residing at the Palace of Ismail Pasha in Giza from 1880, the museum was placed to its present location at Cairo later in 1900. The Egyptian Museum Cairo was established by the Egyptian government in 1835, in order to prevent the antiquities from looting and to protect the rare artifacts.
