James Bond fans will recognize the house instantly - this was the setting for a steamy tryst and murder in The Spy Who Loved Me. The museum is actually two houses dating to 1540 and 1632 respectively. A retired British army major purchased the two houses in the 1930s and refurbished them, filling their spaces with an outstanding collection of Asian furniture and pieces. Many of the rooms have themes, and this might be the closest you'll ever get to feeling like you are in an authentic medieval Cairene mansion. The place is chock full of marble fountains, opulent wood paneling, dark wood furniture and fine Turkish rugs and pillows.
