Who knows what treasures are hidden !!

        1. On to the children’s … or an ice cream

        Today you travel with your own car / van with private driver and guide, so you can decide whether you want to stop somewhere after the pyramids, for example, get an ice cream, or you prefer to drive straight to the children’s museum. The museum itself has a large garden where you can just something nice to eat or drink.

        1. Join and explore in the children

        Late in the morning you at the Children. The kids can straight away the great Egyptian adventure dive!

        The museum is designed for children (up to 12 years) and has no boring presentations, but all kinds of interactive games, exhibits and computer games that children actively learn about the history of Egypt.

        Just some examples of what children can do at the museum:

        • The large statues of Ramses II reverse engineering with huge foam blocks.
        • Elephants and crocodiles look in the Nile Delta recreated in the museum garden.
        • Getting started as an archaeologist: nice dig for ancient treasures.
        • Learn how to make a mummy.
        • Playing with the floodgates of the Aswan dam.
        • Hieroglyphics puzzle together and crafts Egyptian animals.

        Tip:
        The museum has four floors with different themes connected “by the time stage” through together. The first two floors are called “Where I come from ‘and’ Who am I ‘and go over the history of Egypt; about mummies, pyramids, Tutankhamun and the rural life along the Nile. Stage 3 and 4 are about the present and the future of Egypt. For Dutch / Belgian children are the first two floors of the museum often enough to be entertained for hours. Since the museum closes at 14:00, it is therefore wise to start on level 1 and 2 along with your guide.
