Museum & Art Galleries
The freedom, fascination and bright colors, all this is the trademark of the Red Sea, and can be found in Hurghada’s museums and art galleries.
Marine Biology Museum
This museum is located in the northern region of the town and marks the ideal place for non divers who don’t want to miss the underwater action and rich oceanic ecology of the region. The Marine Biology Museum offers a journey through the underwater world that reveals a compilation of stunning coral reefs, and numerous species that include sea turtles, sharks, and the dugong, a large marine mammal that instigated the legend of mermaids.
If you are more into cultural exploration, then visit this museum and discover a wide range of the Egyptian history’s remains. It’s the first national museum founded on the Red Sea Coast, showcasing antiquities, submerged mountains, and remains from the Pharaonic to the Islamic Era. This unique museum is sited on the water's edge and features four exhibition halls, artists' studios and performance spaces.
Café Del Mar
Enjoy a nice coffee or fine local wine while viewing a collection of paintings by local artists at the newly opened and fairly contemporary art gallery cum café, located at El Dahar.
