Grande Museu Egípcio vai abrir em finais de 2021
September 22, 2021 - O há muito aguardado Grande Museu Egípcio, construído nos arredores do Cairo e considerado o maior museu do mundo dedicado a uma única civilização, vai albergar cerca de 100.000 artefactos antigos, incluindo toda a coleção de Tutankamon.
The 60,000-square-metre building has been built on a plot of nearly 500,000 square metres, about two kilometres from the Giza Pyramids plateau, according to The National.
It has been in the works since a worldwide architectural competition was announced in 2002.
But completion has had several delays because of political and economic instability after the 2011 revolution, and travel and tourism challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The venue is slated to open in late 2021.
