Solar Boat Museum Tours

Built in 1985, the Solar Boat Museum is home to one of the world's most unique finds—an ancient Egyptian solar barge that was buried near Khufu's tomb at the Great Pyramid of Giza as early as 2500 BC to help transport the pharaoh to the afterlife. It is one of the world's oldest and most remarkably preserved ships from antiquity.

After being exhumed in 1954 and painstakingly reconstructed from 1,224 pieces—a process that took over 13 years—the mighty ship is now on display for the public to see. The museum offers fascinating insight into the ancient ship's discovery and reconstruction, but the boat itself is, of course, the highlight. Constructed from cedar wood and measuring 143 feet (43.6 meters) long and 19 feet (5.9 meters) wide, the ship is an impressive sight. Three floors of walkways allow visitors to view it from all angles.

Practical Info

The Solar Boat museum is located next to the Great Pyramid of Giza (Khufu), and is open daily (summer 8:30am–5pm; winter 8:30am–4pm). Adult admission costs E£50.
