The museum was opened in 1937, and its exhibition of historical content was presented on a small area in the building of the Ministry of Defense and the fleet. The Military Museum is located in the palace of El Haramlek, which is considered one of the most beautiful palaces built by Muhammad Ali Pasha, ruler of Egypt from 1805 to 1843.
