“Cheops Boat Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Fascinating to see the engineering they were capable of and the excellent condition the boat is still in. Also viewing the boat give you some insight into their concept of the afterlife.

Take the opportunity to visit this amazing find. The boat has been lovingly reassembled and you can walk around over and even underneath it.

Its definitely worth a visit and is a great enhancement to the 'pyramid experience
