The Grand Egyptian Museum is not only committed to preserving cultural heritage but also dedicated to sustainability. It proudly holds the distinction of being Egypt's first environmentally friendly green building, fostering social unity, economic growth, and environmental protection.

At the entrance of the Grand Egyptian Museum, visitors are greeted by a breathtaking wall adorned with hieroglyphs, honoring Egypt's legendary kings and queens. This grand institution is the world's largest archaeological museum solely dedicated to the Egyptian civilization.

Tailor-made to celebrate the grandeur of ancient Egypt, the museum stands as a global cultural icon. It boasts a striking exterior design featuring the iconic pyramid, with seven large pyramidal structures and numerous smaller pyramid designs adorning its façade.

The museum is set to house a remarkable collection, including all of Tutankhamun's artifacts, a total of over 5,000 items spread across 7,000 square meters.

Among the museum’s treasures are rare artifacts like a double statue of the deities Amun and Mut, King Ramses II's pink granite column, and Queen Hatshepsut's colossal granite statue. Notable inscriptions and murals from various ancient rulers adorn its walls.

The museum's architectural alignment with the Pyramids of Giza and its yearly sun phenomenon, mirroring Abu Simbel's alignment, showcase the precision of ancient Egyptian engineering.

Beyond its vast collection, the museum offers six main galleries housing over 100,000 Egyptian artifacts, as well as temporary exhibition halls, a children's museum, library, cinema, auditorium, conference center, retail shops, dining options, and extensive gardens and open spaces.

Notably, King Tutankhamun's scarf and the Khufu Solar Ship will find their home in the museum, which stands as the world's largest museum dedicated solely to the greatness of the Egyptian civilization.
