  • The Khufu ship is an intact full-size vessel from Ancient Egypt that was sealed into a pit in the Giza pyramid complex at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Giza around 2500 BC. The ship now is preserved in the Giza Solar boat museum. The ship was almost certainly built for Khufu (King Cheops), the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Egypt. Like other buried Ancient Egyptian ships, it was apparently part of the extensive grave goods intended for use in the afterlife, and contained no bodies, unlike northern European ship burials

  • Name is wrong, it's solar museum. A must see, better than anything else there. Comfortable space, good conservation work. The antique shop is reasonable. As usual the wash room man is demanding.

  • It gives you a good idea, that how the pyramids were built and how they giant stones was brought to this site. Worth visiting place once you're already there.

  • last 2003 I went here..I saw the Khufu ship it is well preserved.. I am longing for a longer time to stay but it was near to closing time and the group is already tired walking from the Sphinx up to here...
