The Grand Egyptian Museum, two decades in the making, beautifully combines tradition with modern innovation. It has become an important tourist attraction in 21st-century Egypt and is the largest archaeological museum in the world. 

When people abroad think of Egypt, they often picture ancient artefacts, camels, and the desert. This museum proves otherwise and showcases Egypt's dedication to preserving its cultural heritage while embracing the future. Here, the past and the present come together, allowing visitors to explore the wonders of ancient Egypt in a new and exciting way.


Technology in the Grand Egyptian Museum

The Grand Egyptian Museum, a testament to Egypt's commitment to preserving its cultural heritage, is not just a repository of ancient artefacts but a hub of technological innovation. For instance, Ramses II was meticulously laser-scanned to create a 3D model before being placed in the museum.

This cutting-edge technique was also applied to many of the museum's 100,000 artefacts, spanning Egyptian history from prehistory to the Greco-Roman period, including all the treasures from King Tutankhamun's tomb. It also features virtual reality, augmented reality, interactive exhibits, 3D models, and more.


The Tutankhamun Immersive Exhibition

This exhibition, held in December, went viral because of how amazing it looked. It is a way to attract tourists using technology and Egypt's ancient history as an edge. As the world evolves, people want to experience things in a new way, and experiencing Ancient Egypt with such a modern approach is something that could not be done anywhere else.


Global Collaborations and Partnerships

As the largest archaeological museum in the world, the Grand Egyptian Museum is not just a local treasure but a global phenomenon. Its unique design has drawn international interest, leading to exciting collaborations. Recently, billionaire Ankur Jain hosted a four-day wedding celebration in Egypt and partnered with the museum to hold a Met Gala-inspired soirée, which garnered global attention.
