The entire world is highly anticipating the official launch of the Grand Egyptian Museum.
The hanging obelisk is installed in front of the facade of the Grand Egyptian Museum after its restoration was completed.
This design is the first of its kind in Egypt and the world. The new design gives the visitor a unique view, as they will stand on a glass plate under their feet, resting on the base of the obelisk.
The first thing the Grand Egyptian Museum visitors are expected to see is the hanging obelisk of Ramses II, standing tall in front of the main façade of the museum.
The Grand Egyptian Museum is a national project that the whole world is highly anticipating. It is the biggest museum in the world dedicated to one civilization and will house over 50,000 artifacts.
The restorers of the Grand Egyptian Museum are currently performing accurate restoration work on GEM’s hanging obelisk, which will be placed in the museum's exterior foyer.
