On 4 October 2004 the Egyptian Galleries at the Fitzwilliam Museum closed to allow a major project of renovation and redisplay to be carried out.

After 20 months the new displays were formally opened by the His Excellency Mr Gehad Madi, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt, and became open to the public again on 25 May.
