Museum Building - Grand Staircase
Stretching for a length of 64 meter and rising 24 meters, with a width of 85 meters at the bottom and 17 meters at the top, the Grand Staircase will create one of the principle chronological streams that will define the story line of the museum for the visitors. Artifacts displayed along its length will introduce and illustrate the history of Pharaonic Egypt.
The exhibition to Grand Stair is ordered by the chronological grid. This exhibition brings the visitor from modernity, which is Cairo , back in time to antiquity at the top of the stairs, which is the view to the pyramid complex. From this pyramid outlook, the visitor enters the permanent exhibition spaces. The Grand Stair is flanked by Temporary Exhibition, Children’s Gallery and researcher’s entrance.
