El Alamein has a war museum with other North African battles. Visitors can go to the Italian and German military cemeteries on Tel el-Eisa Hill outside the town; the German cemetery is an ossuary, built in the style of a medieval fortress. The Italian cemetery is a mausoleum containing 5,200 tombs. Many tombs bear the soldier's name. There is a separate Greek cemetery at El Alamein.

The cemetery entrance is through the Alamein Memorial and there is a separate Alamein Cremation Memorial to 603 Commonwealth service personnel who died in Egypt and Libya and were cremated in line with their religion. The names of 213 Canadian airmen appear on the Alamein Memorial in Egypt; the cemetery was designed by Sir J. Hubert Worthington. El Alamein has a hot desert climate Köppen climate classification BWh, in common with most of the Middle East and north Africa. However, like the rest of the northern coast of Egypt, its climate is less hot, compared to the rest of Egypt, because of the prevailing Mediterranean Sea winds. Two important World War II battles were fought in the area: At the First Battle of El Alamein the advance of Axis troops on Alexandria was blunted by the Allies, stopping the German Panzers that were trying to outflank the Allies position. At the Second Battle of El Alamein Allied forces broke the Axis line and forced them all the way back to Tunisia. Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister at the time, said of this victory: "Now this is not the end, it is not the beginning of the end.

But it is the end of the beginning." After the war, he wrote:. After Alamein, we never had a defeat."

On 17 May 2011, Tenaris agreed to pay the US Department of Justice US$8.9 million in the first deferred prosecution agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A settlement was reached after Tenaris voluntarily disclosed details of illicit payments made to officials of an Uzbek state-controlled oil firm which were not properly recorded in the company's financial statements. According to the Department of Justice, Tenaris paid bribes through local agents to obtain competitor’s bid information, which it used to submit revised bids in order to secure tenders. An official at the Department of Justice said: "The company's immediate self-reporting, thorough internal investigation, full cooperation with SEC staff, enhanced anti-corruption procedures and enhanced training made it an appropriate candidate for the Enforcement Division's first Deferred Prosecution Agreement." On 24 December 2013, over 100 disgruntled ex-employees of Tenaris Tamsa in Veracruz stormed the facilities and were attacked with sticks and stones by supporters of the worker's union, "Sindicato Union y Progreso", or SNUP.

These workers had been dismissed by the company in 2012 for their violence after attempting to elect a new union leader, Jose Carlos Guevara Moreno, "El Profe", Pascual Lagunes Ochoa, who as of April 2016 remains as the union leader of SNUP, attends and speaks at public events. The ex-employees are in a legal battle against the company, having been denied their severance, they have requested that it be audited by Hacienda, the tax collection branch of the government.
