Many people opted not to pay the entry fee and see the solar boat for themselves and they really missed out on one of the spectacular features of Giza. My friends and I decided to pay the 50 EP and were pleasantly surprised, along with...More

To think that this actual boat is thousands of years old, how they found and recovered it and what wonderful condition it is in - it is truly mind blowing. I consider it one of the most incredible artifacts on display in Egypt. Make sure...More

I would probably give this 3 stars if we went on our own and just read the information at the exhibit because you can only somewhat gauge the significance. Our tour guide was such a good story teller though that he completely amplified the experience....More

This is a very small museum, but definitely worth the couple dollars to get to view the actual boat they used to transport the limestone blocks used to build the pyramids. You also get to see the block cave where it was discovered.
