The solar boat museum found near the pyramids at Giza has had limited publicity but is worth a visit. It reminded us of the Viking ship museum at Oslo, Norway but with only one boat displayed. The reconstruction of the boat is quite good. One...More

Definitely awe inspiring. Wooden boat that has survived 6000 years! Was really wonderful to see and walk around it. I liked the small museum around it too with pictures of where it was found and otehr artifacts. Love the history behind what I'm seeing.

Seeing the actual solar boat in person is grand, beautiful and incredible. It’s so hard to imagine that this beautiful solar boat that has been found in pieces was assembled like a jigsaw puzzle. It’s just as old as the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Truly...More

Loved seeing the solar boat every time I visit the pyramids. It’s wonderful seeing the actual reconstructed boat and learning of its finding in a chamber in 1953/4. I think it’s a bit pricey at 100 Egyptian pounds, but where else are you going to...More

This solar boat museum is right next to the Cheops pyramid but it is oh so quiet & peaceful! Not a usual stop for most tourists but since we had the combined ticket (Giza pyramids general entrance, Cheops pyramid entrance, solar boat museum), we decided...More

The Solar Boat is usually an extra on most Pyramid tours but it is certainly worth it. If funds are scarce, skip the worthless camel ride.

Hi - if the tour is not included, it is so easy to get a ticket, the ticket booth is right outside the entrance to the Solar Boat museum, which is right next the the Big Pyramid of Khufu. It takes about 15 to 20 mins to tour... More
