The 36 foot tall Colossus of Ramesses II can be found in the Mit Rahina Museum, a smaller open-air museum in the ancient city of Memphis about 12 miles south of Cairo. There is a small fee to enter but there are many great monuments to view, the Colossus to be the attraction. The Memphis area sites are not crowded compared to Giza.
Ramesses II was one of the longest living Pharaohs and commissioned many statues and monuments to his greatness during his 67 year reign. This statue was originally at one of his temples when discovered in 1820. It now rests (laying down due to missing legs) in a purpose-made building with second floor viewing. You can get up close and personal with the statue to see the fine carving skill and details.
