Mohammed Mahmoud Khalil Pasha and his wife Emiline Lock lived in a palace that was built around 1920. On the memory of Mohammed Mahmoud Khalil Pasha and his wife Emiline Lock, it was turned into museum in 20th century. It was first opened in July 1962 but was converted back into President Anwar El-Sadat’s executive offices in 1971 and the museum was moved. The museum was moved back after restoration in 1993.
The French Ardico style palace with the eastern side overlooking the Nile, carries some features of the Arnoveau Style making it evident from the metal and glass skeleton above the entrance of the palace.
The Palace is four storied and built on an area of 1400 m2. The collection of artworks by the couple is by far the largest personal collection in Egypt.
