The objective of this competition for architecture students and young architects, Museum of the Ancient Nile (MoAN) Egypt, is to conceive of a museum that will submerge visitors in the ancient Nile and become an essential experience for tourists who wish to comprehend how Egyptian civilization proliferated.

Thanks to its privileged location, the proposed space will become an obligatory stop for people visiting the river, as a preamble to the history, mythology and monuments that the region contains – a global focal point for tourism that is capable of transmitting the importance of the ancient Nile for the history of humanity.
