The museum, which opened in July 1999 commemorates the Denshawai Incident, Egyptian peasants who struggled against British colonialism in 1906, and honors the seven martyrs who were hanged on 26 June 1906.
The museum's design is that of an Egyptian pigeon tower, with three levels connected by spiral stone stairs. The museum includes a replica of the gallows, paintings and sculptures that tell the story of the incident as it unfolded, five exhibition halls, and public space.
