View of Khufu Pyramid Now Fully Clear After Solar Ship Move

The solar ship's new home at the Grand Egyptian Museum is fitted with modern display equipment and museum standards, so the ship can be kept well-preserved, while allowing it to be viewed safely.

For the first time in decades, your view of the Khufu Pyramid in Giza can be completely uninterrupted after the solar ship - a majestic artefact that had been excavated near the pyramid - was moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum.


After the solar ship, otherwise known as the Khufu Ship, was discovered in 1954, it was kept in the Giza Solar Boat Museum in 1960. Although the museum allowed visitors to get an up-close and personal look at the massive wooden barge, it was built right at the southern side of the Khufu Pyramid, preventing people from having a full view of the Khufu Pyramid.
