Explain the GEM History, Prices, Tours
The Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) is a new miraculous museum in Giza, just minutes from Cairo. The museum will be one of the most significant archaeological museums in the world. The construction of it finished in 2022, and the grand Opening is set for late 2023. The GEM has over 100,000 artifacts and exhibits spanning the entirety of Egypt’s history, from prehistoric times to the present day. Some of these artifacts have never been seen and put on display before.
The idea for the Grand Egyptian Museum was first proposed in the early 1990s. Construction began in 2002, and a cost to finish was a billion dollars collected by securing a 300 million dollar loan from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation. The Egyptian government delivered $147 million; the rest was collected from international organizations and donations.
The project has faced numerous delays and setbacks over the years but is complete and offers limited access to some exhibits. The museum is being built near the Giza pyramids and designed by Heneghan Peng Architects, Arup, and Buro Happold Engineering, and the Irish architects Heneghan Peng to have a modernized design of the ancient Egyptian pyramids and temples. It has an area of 480,000 square meters (around 5.2 million square feet) and includes many exhibits and centers. The museum’s design features a modern, glass-walled building that is shaped like a chamfered triangle, with a central atrium that will house some of the museum’s most impressive artifacts, such as:
- Conservation Centre.
- The Royal Regalia.
- The Victory Column of King Mercnptah.
- Solar Boat of King Khufu.
- Hanging Obelisk.
- 10 Statues of King Senusert.
- King Ramses Il Statue.
- Statues of Ptolemaic King and Queen.
- Grand staircase.
- Grand Atrium & Gift shop.
The Grand Egyptian Museum will showcase the history of ancient Egypt through its vast collection of artifacts, including the treasures of Tutankhamun, the world’s most famous pharaoh. The museum will also feature interactive exhibits and multimedia displays that will give visitors a deeper understanding of ancient Egyptian culture and society, which will be accessible after the grand opening.
The museum includes high-tech features like interactive exhibits, a training center, a children’s museum, a conference center, workshops with ancient Pharaonic style, digital projections, and up to 122 immersive displays containing some of the most incredible materials.
One of the museum’s main attractions will be the Grand Gallery. This 7,000-square-meter exhibition space will display some of the museum’s most important artifacts, including the complete collection of Tutankhamun’s treasures. Other highlights of the museum’s collection include the Narmer Palette, Ramses, the great mega statue, the statue of Khafre, the Solar Boat of Khufu, and more. The Grand Egyptian Museum is expected to become one of the world’s most important cultural institutions, drawing visitors from around the globe to experience Egyptian civilization’s rich history and heritage.
