Ruling on Visiting the Pyramids and Museums to Learn a Lesson – Shaikh al-Albani

Question: So like this, Oh Eminent Shaikh, is it allowed to visit the museums like the pyramids and other than it?

Shaikh: It is allowed.

Questioner: However, to gain an exhortation or not? Like this?

Shaikh: For an exhortation, lesson, information. From the angle of:

عرفت الشر لا للشر ولكن لتوقيه ***ومن لا يعرف الشر من الخير يقع فيه

I learn evil not for the sake of evil but to avoid it
The one who does not know evil from good will fall into it
