The Egyptian pavilion was shaped like a curvilinear triangle and consisted of two soft pink buildings connected by a patio and portico through black vase gardens and ponds.

The small pavilion also contained tools dating back 5 to 6,000 years, showing that all modern techniques were derived from the inventions of ancient Egypt.

The large pavilion contained the reconstruction of Philoe, specimens of the products of the soil, industry, works of art, carpets, simple or rich fabrics, originally hung on rods, etc...

At the top of the steps, the bust of Zaglub Pasha stood.

Above the entrance, you could notice a stained glass window executed on the model of Arab stained glass windows, at the bottom of which was placed the model of the extension of Heliopolis.
