The scenario of the museum is very interesting as it depicts the story of the ancient canal dug by King Sesostris III, exhibited in the first hall, named “The Sesostris Canal,“ which is a collection of artifacts and statues of the ancient Egyptian kings who helped establish and protect the canal. Also displayed are a collection of artifacts discovered in “Wadi Gwasis” which includes Sao, a port on the Red Sea. It also includes several texts from the reign of Hatshepsut depicting the return of her fleet from the land of Punt, from where she brought ebony, ivory, and frankincense trees. A set of blocks inscribed with the god Hapi, a symbol of the Nile is also exhibited. These blocks were discovered in the Awlad Moussa area in the Gulf of Suez and are evidence of Nile contact with a distant region at the time.
