This house (baitWhat does it mean?) is adjacent to Ibn Tulun mosque. It is actually formed of two houses, one built in 1540 and the other in 1631.

The house was inhabited by several generations and finally by a British citizen called Major Gayer-Anderson between 1935 and 1942.
Now it is a museum. It will give you an idea about the artistic skills of this period in terms of ordinary houses.
