Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Trip to see was good but having such history and treasure very disappointing to see that they couldn't maintain or manage such asset...... Overall experience was good they could have made it worth visiting but need to maintain it properly. Must come and see!!!!

Nice stop to see a magnificent statue close up. Other interesting monuments around the grounds. A few vendors with carts have some nice souvenirs. Never did I feel any pressure to purchase anything.

One of the biggest ones we saw in Egypt. It is actually bigger that you could see from the pictures. It's amazing to be so close to this historical statue.

The access from the city center is not easy but deserves the trip. The site is historically impressive. Many historical marks and quite well maintained. The access price is 40 egps by person meaning around 4 usd. The statue is big and not easy to imagine how they build it and how they moved there...

This is so unbelievably large in person. it is protected frem the elements. It is thought provoking to wonder how such a large statue was formed to scale in such early times.

In keeping with my recent review of the Saqqara pyramids, I’d suggest that you consider your time, resources and stamina with this stop in Memphis. The statue is amazing, but for the average person, the statue of Ramses II is really the only thing of significance in the open air Memphis museum, so a side trip to this museum may not be a priority.

The gigantic statue of the famous pharoah Ramesis II is simply awesome ! The scale and craftsmanship is amazing ! One is left wondering how they constructed it without the modern machinery and equipment .

We enjoyed visiting the Statue of Ramses II in its open air location. The small crowd allowed us plenty of good views. It is impressive.

Very impressive monument. After visiting the Saqqara (Step Pyramid) and the Dahshur (Red and Bent Pyramids) with the Museum in Memphis we were again impressed. The Statue of Ramesses II is huge and immediately impresses with its beauty. The thought that the granite was brought here and how much effort needed to build the statue, impressed us.
