One is left inspired at the workmanship of those long ago. Climate controlled building. Truly amazing, without a doubt a visit is required.

This re-contructed vessel is housed in a museum structure next to the Great Pyramid. It consists of several levels surrounding the actual funerary boat which gives you a great 360 degree view of the boat - fascinating!

The hugeness will make you awestruck. The history and facts behind it's construction is interesting. Full credit to the authorities for making the museum so beautiful by maintaining it's original graveyard, depicting it's discovery and reconstruction through pictures, and creating it's miniature models.
