This museum, conveniently near the Great Pyramid, is interesting to visit to see a 4000 year old ceremonial boat. It doesn't take long to go around and there are presentations which are in English.

Stopped in the museum and really enjoyed the aur conditioning as it was so hot outside. The boat itself is just incredible and what a job they did restoring it. There's also restrooms inside.

No trip to Egypt would be complete without going out to the pyramids and the funerary boat. The workmanship is outstanding and you are awed by how well these artifacts have been preserved.

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.
