Grand Egyptian Museum - opening in 2013?


Rumours are that the new $US 550 million Grand Egyptian Museum will be finished and open by 2013. For a glimpse of what can be expected see the video above.

The Museum, near the the Giza pyramids, will display 50,000 objects, including the funerary objects of Tutankhamun.

There will also be - and this is very important - a 7,000 square metre commercial area with shops, cafeterias, restaurants, leisure and recreational activities, as well as a 250 seat cinema.

Perhaps we can all meet up at the opening ceremony? What do you mean you haven't received your invite yet!
