The Great Giza Pyramid of Khufu is the last surviving member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was originally 146 m (479 ft) high but now stands a still impressive 137 m (449 ft). Over 2 million blocks of stone were used to construct it, and all with manual labor.
Perhaps the most recognizable among the Seven Wonders of the World, the exact origin of these majestic pyramids continues to spark debate.
Right behind Khufu''s Pyramid is the Boat Museum. In ancient Egypt, the bodies of pharaohs were floated down the Nile in ceremonial boats to their final resting places. These boats were dismantled and stored in tombs of their own. Amazingly, one wooden boat survived the millennia, almost entirely intact. It was discovered a few decades ago, and was painstakingly put back together again.
The Boat Museum contains the story of the discovery of this boat, and the process of reconstruction. It also contains the boat itself, which is beautiful in its own rights. Witnessing a piece of history like this is well worth the ten extra Egyptian pounds, and the time it takes to put protective coverings over shoes.

The Sphinx, also known as the Abu-al-Hol (Father of Terror), placed in front of the Great Pyramid and is believed to be older than the pyramids themselves. The Sphinx is supposed to be a mysterious being that has the body of a lion and the face of a human closely resembling King Kephren.
