Bibliotheca Alexandrina

Bibliotheca Alexandrina artfully marries learning and culture, housing an impressive collection of museums and libraries, including a children’s library. Kids under the age of six aren’t allowed in the library room, but daycare is available during opening hours. The photo-worthy structure is designed like a large, angled discus, its granite exterior showcasing letters from over 120 scripts. 

Fun fact

Bibliotheca Alexandrina’s generous, light-drenched interior can house up to eight million books and 2,500 readers.
