City: Cairo

South of the Great Pyramid of Giza is the fascinating Solar Boat Museum which houses a well-preserved full-size vessel from Ancient Egypt which was found is a sealed pit next o the Pyramid of Khufu, which may have been used to transport the mummy of the dead pharaoh through the underworld. The boat is a remarkable piece of engineering about 40 m long with a displacement of 400 tones. There is also some physical evidence that suggests the vessel actually sailed at sea, and a team of archaeologists almost spent over 10 years reconstructing that boat to be displayed in the Solar Boat Museum.
