United Nations will also help with the museum and will give 100,000$, so more things can be recuperate and in order to approach this goal a group of volunteers from the UNESCO already are in the Capital city.

Workers from the museum were taking off all the glasses, steel bars and wood artifacts that were all over the place. All things related to the different periods of time of the Islamic History were in this Cairo Museum of Islamic Art. This museum was built back in 1881 and had historic things like coins, jewelry, manuscripts and more.
