Founded in 1892, the excellent Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria displays a vast collection of fascinating finds from the city and surrounding region.

Housed behind a Neo-Classical facade bearing the Greek inscription MOYXEION (mouseion; "museum") are 27 halls of exhibits, primarily classical statues and sarcophagi, and an attractive garden. Notable among the exhibits are many finds from the Temple of Serapis, an important shrine in ancient Alexandria.
