National Police Museum (Cairo Citadel)
A small but interesting museum devoted to Egypt’s most sensational murders and assassinations (strangely, Sadat’s is overlooked). The challenge of fingerprinting is exemplified by bizarre photos of people with extra digits, fingerless amputees and a real-life Edward Scissorhands. Another exhibit showcases painted plaster molds of a gunned-down criminal’s foot, hand and grimacing face. Tel: (02) 512-2549, open daily 9am–4:30pm.
