The Gayer-Anderson Museum

This well-preserved 16th century house, located near the Ibn Tulun Mosque, was once the home of Gayer Anderson, a British officer in the Egyptian civil service in the 1930s. Today, the restored building—which has been converted into a museum—houses Anderson’s eclectic collection of furniture, carpets, and many other eastern and ancient Egyptian artifacts, amassed during his life in Egypt.
