    Khufu Solar Boat

    Khufu Solar Boat

    Pharaoh Khufu’s 4,600-year-old vessel, also known as the Solar Boat, has been moved from its well-known home next to the Giza pyramids to the Grand Egyptian Museum.

    According to the Ministry, the Grand Egyptian Museum’s staff team succeeded in transporting the 42-metre (138-foot) long and 20-tonne solar boat, which took 48 hours before it arrived safely at the museum at dawn yesterday, Saturday.

    Atef Moftah, supervisor general of the GEM project, said that the boat was transported inside a metal cage carried on a remote-controlled vehicle imported from Belgium especially for the operation.

    “Special thanks to the huge efforts of the Grand Egyptian Museum, the Engineering Authority of the Armed Forces, the Supreme Council of Antiquities and all the state agencies, companies and teams who contributed to the successful move of the first Khufu boat,” Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said in a tweet.
