Situated in front of the pyramids of Chephren, is the guardian of this ancient mortuary complex: the legendary Great Sphinx. This monumental statue, with the body of a lion and head of a human, was carved from a single piece of Giza Plateau bedrock and is considered a national symbol of both ancient and modern Egypt.

Opened in 1902, the museum has over 107 halls displaying the world’s largest and richest collection of Egyptian antiquities, including statues, mummies and the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamen.
