A visit to the Great Pyramids & Sphinx of Gîza is not complete unless visitors also enter the fabulous structure known as the Solar Boat Museum. Once again the huge discovery of the boat portrays the meticulous craftsmanship of those who built this magnificent wooden...More

While this is called a museum, it is actually a full sized ancient boat that has been painstakingly restored with only rope and wooden pegs. You will be awestruck by the sheer size of the boat and how it is displayed. The museum was not...More

Although was not included in our plan, but we decided to visit and it was worth the time and money. Tickets are available right outside the museum for EGP 80 (October 2018). I was amazed at the size, complexity and skill that was available to...More

Words still cant describe all the amazing things that are here and how they did that. So the Solar Boat Museum stays in line with "How did they do that?" We are a fishing family, so all the details to this boat blew us away.

The full sized ship was buried near the great pyramids of Giza. All but ropes are original. Incredible detail and not a single nail. There’s also several other model ancient ships and other cool things. Nice break from heat n crowds too.

in Egypt, if you use the washroom, normally you have to tip 1LE to 2LE, but if the washroom is inside a site, then you don't have too if you have a thick skin. Solar Boat Museum has the best washroom in Giza Pyramids area.

This is a fascinating story about an almost accidental find that resulted in another chapter of the history of Egypt being laid out. It is convenient to the pyramids and a must see stop

Astonishing to think it was tied together with rope. Well worth a visit to read about the boat and it’s discovery.

Hi - if the tour is not included, it is so easy to get a ticket, the ticket booth is right outside the entrance to the Solar Boat museum, which is right next the the Big Pyramid of Khufu. It takes about 15 to 20 mins to tour... More
