Details

Ramses II, also known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom in Egypt's Golden Age. Believed to be a god on Earth, he ruled for 67 years in the 19th Dynasty, erecting enormous temples, obelisks and statues, and greatly expanding Egypt's empire.  This state-of-the-art exhibition features the greatest collection of Ramses II objects and Egyptian jewelry ever to travel to the United States. Along with the pharaoh's colossal royal sculpture, the exhibition highlights recently discovered animal mummies and treasures from the royal tombs of Dahshur and Tanis.  Visitors can walk among towering statues and immerse themselves in multimedia productions that re-create moments from Ramses' life, including his triumph at Kadesh, the largest chariot battle ever fought.  Your visit also includes the virtual reality experience Ramses & Nefertari: Journey to Osiris, offering a breathtaking tour of Ramses' most impressive monument, Abu Simbel and Nefertai's tomb.  Enjoy a leisurely lunch on your own at one of the cafes.

We do not share specific pickup information on our website, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pickup points without our or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pickup points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pickup points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
