This is an outdoor museum of sorts on the site of the old city. The big statue of Ramses II is covered to help protect it so be sure to see it. It does not take long to visit.

Well worth the visit. We set off at 08:15hrs and went to the necropolis first. Here, I saw the first Egyptian pyramid (the step pyramid of Djoser) which is quite unlike those at Giza and smaller. Then, I went into different tombs. Tombs of ministers...More
