Embraced by the Babylonian Fort, and in the heart of the Religious complex, lies the Coptic Museum, housing the largest collection of Egyptian Christian artifacts. It was founded by Marcus Simaika Pasha in 1910, with joint efforts between the Royal Family, Cairo Museum, and donations from Egyptian Christian Notables.
In the museum building, architectural elements from churches, monasteries and old houses of wealthy Christian families were integrated including Mosaic fountains, Mashrabeyas and inlaid wooden doors.
