Saqqara Virtual Tour

Egypt's first pyramid is found in Pharaoh Djosser's mortuary complex at Saqqara. This was the first time that stone was used to such an extent and with such artistry and precision. This first pyramid became known as the Step Pyramid.



Solar Boat Museum Virtual Tour

Two rectangular boat pits found on the south side of the Great Pyramid were discovered in 1954, covered by huge limestone slabs, containing the dismantled remains of two Royal Boats. It is thought that these boats transported Khufu's body to his pyramid.



Wissa Wassef Virtual Tour

Ramses Wissa Wassef, an Egyptian architect, was persuaded of the fundamental importance of creativity as a force to shape the society in which we live. Prompted by this conviction he started an educational and artistic experiment in 1941 which continues today, twenty six years after his death. The weavings exhibited in the Wissa Wassef Art Center are an example of the results of this experiment.
