Amazing history, scale of the boat is surprising. The care and preservation efforts are easy to see. Being to walk around the boat at two levels let’s you see the workmanship, considering it’s old.

This is really interesting and an amazing reminder of archaeological expertise. It has displays of some of the parts of the ship as well as the centrepiece of the ship itself. No photographs are allowed for some reason

This boat was made 500 year ago and then all its parts were buried in the ground next to the pyramid. It was discovered and excavated 60 year ago. A must see.

This boat is 28 m long and was found buried in a trench disassembled until 18 ton stones. It dates from the 26 C BCE. It is very interesting to look at the wood joinery, the planks being held together by ropes with the carved...More

This museum is well worth the modest admission charge. The boat is in excellent condition and helps give context to the equipment that was used in the times of the Pharaohs.

This is worth the price if you have never seen it. I rather not repeat what others have already stating the obvious. However, it would be a shame to not purchase the additional ticket to see it up close and personal.
