The BA Antiquities Museum organizes an exciting cultural and educational program for children and young people during the summer vacation. It aims to increase their archeological and cultural awareness on the history and civilization of Egypt through several activities supervised by archeological specialists. Talented candidates are selected to make replicas of the museum artifacts using a variety of materials, such as gypsum, colors, clay, glass, and mosaic. Participants are also given a historical background about the artifact they are interested in copying. The works are then displayed in special exhibitions. The Antiquities Museum has also prepared an interesting picture book, in both Arabic and English, about the museum collections for children aged 8–15.
