Designed and built in 1902 by architect Marcel Dourgnon, the two-storey Egyptian Museum is fronted by a sculpture garden and has a mind-boggling 120,000 objects on display.
The museum's most significant showpieces are the Tutankhamun collection from the New Kingdom (18th dynasty), funerary objects from the tomb of Sennedjem and his family, sarcophagi and coffins from different periods, the rare collection from the reign of the monotheistic pharaoh, sculptures from all periods of ancient Egypt, and more.

Explore Giza and visit the final resting places of the pharaohs of the fourth dynasty. Visit three famous pyramids on the Giza plateau: the Great Pyramid (the only remaining of the seven wonders of the ancient world), the Pyramid of Chephren and the Pyramid of Mycerinus. You will also visit the smaller pyramids of the princess and queens.
From the pyramids, you'll make your way to the Solar Boat Museum, which houses a royal funerary boat believed to have transported the body of Khufu to the Great Pyramid, either symbolically or literally. It was found intact but excavated in pieces, and has since been reassembled, an endeavor that took 10 years to complete. On the return trip, you can stop at the Papyrus Institute, where you will see how this ancient writing material was produced.

Take a journey to the edge of the desert and the site of the ancient city of Memphis, the first capital of the united Egypt, where you'll see the Alabaster Sphinx and several colossal statues of Rameses II.
From Memphis, you can journey a few kilometres further to Sakkara, one of the largest necropolises in Egypt, which features the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. Dating from 2,780 BC during the third dynasty, it is reputed to be the oldest pyramid in the world.
