Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el Damati has said Cairo's Museum of Islamic Art will be opened for public next October.
Damati's remarks came during a meeting on Thursday to follow up the renovation works at the museum.
The museum was subjected to severe destruction and damage last year after a car bomb exploded outside the adjacent Cairo Security Directorate.
The blast of the bomb destroyed the façade of the building and the nearby Egyptian National Library and Archives building.
The Museum of Islamic Art was home to an exceptional collection of rare woodwork and artifacts of all Islamic periods from all over the world.
