How will look new Grand Egyptian Museum?
The Grand Egyptian Museum will look stunning on pictures with the pyramids,
from which it will be just 2 km (1,5 mi) away. The ground area is 50 hectares (120 acres)
large and it‘s lines will match with the Khufu‘s pyramid. From the entrance of the museum you will be greeted
by 3200 years old statue of Ramses II, the interior will be equiped with latest technologies, including the virtual reality.
Although, the museum will provide 50 000 artefacts, including the full collection of Tutankhamun‘s tomb,
the exhibition will cover only one third of the area. There will be a large children‘s museum, conference and trading center,
library, a research center, restoration laboratories, restaurant and cafe.
It will be able to host 15 000 visitors a day and the architects didn‘t forget about the people with special needs.
