At the Alexandria Archaeology Museum learn how the City’s archaeologists, volunteers and students work with residents and developers to study and manage archaeological resources important to the community's past.

 

Paris Design developed the master plan for museum's Torpedo Factory location. The museum design repurposed most existing elements to create a flexible space. At any time the space can be reconfigured as museum, archeology lab, classroom or event.
