The oldest preserved boat of 30m around 2500 BC and is known as solar boat as it is believed to be transporting the royals for funeral rituals. The roof is made of Papyrus and the surprisingly the wood panels made from cedar pine wood from...More
This was a gem of history discovered in the mid 1900’s. Our tour guide mentioned a couple times how this was his favorite part of the pyramids so we obliged. As we walked through the complex he beamed while telling stories of the ancient ship....More
Many people opted not to pay the entry fee and see the solar boat for themselves and they really missed out on one of the spectacular features of Giza. My friends and I decided to pay the 50 EP and were pleasantly surprised, along with...More
Don't be put off by the hideous building that houses this museum (yes, I know it's supposed to be a boat, but it's still a monstrosity verging on the criminal in such an illustrious setting), it is well worth making time for a visit even...More
To think that this actual boat is thousands of years old, how they found and recovered it and what wonderful condition it is in - it is truly mind blowing. I consider it one of the most incredible artifacts on display in Egypt. Make sure...More

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 through the museum so will not take long. But please don't let them tell you it is the same boat as in the Egypt Museum it is NOT!
