The Stories of Pharaohs

Pharaonic history buffs will have the chance to delve into the rich history of ancient Egypt, when The Grand Egyptian Museum opens in Giza next year.

Located between the ancient pyramids and Cairo, the museum will cover 24,000sqm of exhibition space, with a children’s museum, a large conservation centre, and five extensive gardens and parks. Constructed with a dramatic translucent alabaster stone façade, the eye-catching museum will have a shaded entrance area, at which stands a statue of Ramesses the Great, as well as a 24-metre high Grand Staircase leading up to the Giza Plateau, the new home of the Tutankhamen collection of Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, as well as the Solar Boat exhibition, presently located nearby. www.gem.gov.eg
