Gayer-Anderson Museum, {CATEGORY}

This was the residence of British army officer and doctor R. G. Gayer-Anderson between 1935 and 1942. Gayer-Andersen joined and renovated two adjacent 16th-century buildings and collected their present contents, which include contemporary books and art as well as more apropos 16th- and 17th-century furniture and some antique curios, such as a 13th-century sundial. By the time he left, the place was a massive and fascinating warren of restored rooms, courtyards, and balconies stuffed with a museum-ready collection. Before heading back to England, he signed the whole lot over to the Egyptian government, which has been operating the house as a museum ever since. A must-see for most, it will be of particular interest to James Bond fans, who might recognize it from The Spy Who Loved Me, in which Roger Moore huffs and puffs his way somewhat implausibly through the house in pursuit of some villainous SMERSH-type baddies. The museum is next to the Ibn Tulun mosque, and it makes sense to visit them both at the same time. It is easy, in fact, to spend a full morning exploring these two buildings and a little bit of the neighborhood nearby. There is excellent shopping to be had at Khan Misr Toulon across the street from the mosque, but there is nowhere to eat. For a detailed look at the museum, I recommend the excellent Nicholas Warner Guide to the Gayer-Anderson Museum, Cairo (Press of the Supreme Council of Antiquities) and R. G. "John" Gayer-Anderson Pasha's Legends of the House of the Cretan Woman (American University in Cairo Press). Warner's guide is available at the museum, but you may have to ask for it.
