For the preservation of the rich Egyptian legacy of parliamentary & political practice, the House of Representatives Museum was established inside the parliament building, a museum that ranks first among the parliament museums of the world as it includes monumental copies of the oldest governing systems, legislations, regulations and treaties in the history of humanity.

The museum occupies two large halls of the council building. In the first hall acquisitions were organized starting from the Pharaonic age where there are copies of the most important legislations and documents along the Pharaonic ages written on papyrus or inscribed in stone.

There are also copies of the Coptic and Islamic ages in Egypt, then reaching modern Egypt in which modern ruling systems were deeply-rooted i.e.: ministry, parliament, local rule along two decades, until the July 23,1952 Revolution, at last reaching current time.

As for the second half of the museum it contains oil paintings & statues of Egypt's rulers of the Mohammed Ali dynasty. The second part of the hall has in its center the royal carriage of the king of Egypt before the revolution that used to carry him from Abdeen Palace to the parliament-hall.

There are also lots of documents and photos of the committee which set the 1923 constitution - one of the important constitutions in the modern history of Egypt.

There are also photos of all presidents of the parliament in Egypt in chronological order since Ismael Ragheb the first president of the Advisory Council of Representatives in 1866, along with photos the political leaders of Egypt in the modern stage such as Ahmad Orabi, Mustafa Kamel, Mohamed Fareed and Saad Zaghloul.
