The Qasr Al-Eini Museum is a historical medical museum in Cairo, Egypt.

The Museum covers the history of medicine in the Arabic Mashriq region of the Levant, and the historical role played by the Qasr Al-Eini School of Medicine as a linkage between medicine in pharaonic Egypt and modern medicine. [1]

It is the first Museum of an Arab University of Medicine, the Kasr El Aini Hospital, and represents the oldest University of Medicine in the Orient, the Qasr Al-Eini School of Medicine. The Qasr Al-Eini Museum's first phase of building opened in 1998, and a further section opened in 1999. [1]
