Port Said (Bur Said) is a city in Egypt, the entry point of the Suez Canal by the Mediterranean. It is situated on one bank of the canal, facing its twin city, Port Fouad (Bur Fouad).
Port Said Military Museum
Inaugurated in 1964. It consists of several halls which showcase several battles fought by the Egyptian Army and the people of Port Said:
Military/militaristic paintings, bas-reliefs, statues. Captured war material. Models.
Entry: 5 EGP (as of 2007-04-11), camera 2 EGP.
Some oldies from the French and English communities can be found from time to time (books...), and of course the unavoidable and omnipresent tourist collectibles.
Lots of nice and cheap fruit bars.
No night life in Port Said or Port Fouad, except at the numerous chicha bars.
