Announcement: Opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum, Egypt

Dear members,

We're great fans for Ancient Egypt and we hope we'll visit this amazing country. We've a great news for adventurers willing to discover Egypt. This is an event they're waiting for many years.

The Grand Egyptian Museum, which will be the largest archaeological museum for the Ancient Egyptian Civilization, will open at the end of 2020. The museum is sited on 50 hectares of land approximately two kilometers from the Giza pyramids and is part of a new master plan for the plateau.

According to Lonely Planet:

The museum’s completion has been delayed for several years, but it’s now slated to open in the last quarter of 2020 and is said to now be 90% finished. A more specific opening date is supposed to be soon announced by Egyptian president Abdel Fattah Al Sisi. Entry fees, however, are now set in stone. For foreigners, it will be LE400 (about US$25), with 50% off for students. The price for Egyptians is LE60 (about US$3.75). 

We invite you to see some pictures of the future museum here.
