Beautifully restored and so amazed to see where it was found and what good condition it's in and to get an idea of how it looked thousands of years ago

Must visit. Just next to the Pyramids and at extra cost. The boat was never used but complete in every detail. To be used in the after life. No pictures

If you are there to see the pyramids, a pit stop at the solar boat museum is well worth your time....before you go - make sure you understand what this type of "solar boat" means. have a guide.

This boat was recovered from a tomb and is reassembled exactly like it would have been. It's held together by ropes which is pretty cool. You can see it at all levels. Well worth the stop.

I am glad that we decided to have a look on our second visit to the Giza Plateau, found it very informative. I hope they expand it because it was small and you have to pay a separate ticket to see it. I heard that...More
