This statue is just huge and the way it which was preserved by the river is great. The carvings are still so prominent and fascinating

Very intact and large statue. Because it's so big you can appreciate the detailing a lot more. Memphis doesn't have much so this would be the highlight

This outdoor museum has some interesting artifacts. It is off the beaten track and would be hard to find on it's own. Go with a guide.

This statue was found face down. The size of this statue is incredible. You can walk all around it and see the detail on it.

Very worth a visit. The statue is huge. There is a garden of sort right next to this "museum," with a few artifacts to look at. The immediate area around this museum however is quite dismal. Worth about a 30 minute visit there.

We visited the museum in the morning on our way to Saqqara. The statue is huge and makes you wonder how they built it 4000 years ago!

I love this statue. It's amazing to think that this was created so long ago. The preservation of this statue and the others here is astonishing. Truly a must see.
