EXHIBIT: The white ribbon that is visible on the outside of the Pavilion continues throughout the interior of the Pavilion and serves not only to link the various exhibition spaces but also as the background onto which a film about the wonders of the Egyptian civilization is projected.

Eight major antiquities from the Egyptian Museum are being displayed, including the column of Hathor (which acts as the Pavilion’s centerpiece), a statue of the pharaoh Amenhoteph IV (who was Tutankamun’s father) and the mask of Sheshonq II. Other aspects of the Pavilion will use slideshows, films and display items to communicate the modern Cairo to visitors. The human dwelling from prehistoric times up until the modern era, is also on display at the Pavilion.
