12 also addresses issues with regard to the museum curation and conservation limitations After having spent more than a year researching and surveying the museum the team is equipped to propose methods to improve visitor experience and enhance artefact preservation and display This is an indispensable resource as currently the curators and conservators lack the materials and tools to carry out their work which means that the techniques used for curatorial work maintenance or presentation of the artefacts are for the most part below current international standards if implemented at all The layout of the showcases themselves does not maximise the potential for visitor satisfaction being both difficult to follow and unflattering to some of the exhibited items The scarcity of labels and information provided on these items makes it difficult for visitors to place them within their archaeological or historical context According to Sanaa Fouad Senior Curator at the Egyptian Museum The displays themselves are valuable They were made to best represent the works and they are part of the historical value of the building Restoring them is vital to the visitor s viewing experience The Revival of the Egyptian Museum Initiative proposes to follow some simple rules for the construction of eventual buildings on the western side of the existing museum The functions allocated in the area should benefit the museum and should relate to its current cultural and scientific activities including temporary or permanent exhibition halls new restoration laboratories administrative offices and other museum facilities The buildings that will welcome these functions will be single storey structures The existing commercial buildings constructed recently along the western courtyard of the museum will be kept and their present functions bookstore gift shop and restaurant maintained and revitalised It is important to note that any complementary light structures envisaged on the museum ground will always be much lower and smaller than the existing museum to ensure that it remains the main monument of the site The architectural style of the newly built facilities should be in harmony with the existing neo classical architecture of the historical building The proposed new facilities to be constructed on the western side will be built around a Pharaonic Garden designed as Egyptian gardens used to be in ancient times The Pharaonic Garden will be surrounded by a portico along which there will be rooms open to the public such as temporary exhibition spaces as well as restoration laboratories The team also proposes a pedestrian tunnel and docking facilities that would allow visitors to go to the banks of the Nile or visitors coming from the Nile by boat to enter the museum s site through its western river frontage This tunnel will be built under the existing thoroughfare the Corniche and will directly connect the riverbank to the museum site A public garden named Tahrir Garden will extend from the southern boundary of the museum to Tahrir
