The Grand Egyptian Museum now has an Official Instagram Account, with a blue checkmark and everything. Big news for Egyptology stans - now you can get all your updates about the upcoming museum, the largest museum in the world dedicated to a single civilization, straight from the Pharaoh's mouth at @grandegyptianmuseum.

So far, their Instagram account shares cute little tidbits and facts about the museum, like a brief video demonstrating how the museum is geometrically aligned with the nearby Giza Pyramids, or the beautifully calculated opening they've designed into the side of the museum to recreate the sacred solar alignment of Abu Simbel on the statue of King Ramses II.

In the future, we can expect to see even more from their new page - maybe even an official announcement for the grand opening date, yeah?
