The Museum and the Pyramid plateau are linked to become a continuous Discovery Park that has all the excavations sites and architectural structures. The Museum building itself is organised as a spiral route around an irregular central void space. The design evokes strong physical experiences: narrow tunnels ending in huge halls, breathtaking depths and amazing treasure chambers, tempered light and darkness, disorientating acoustics, chilly walls and warm deep colours. Through all five senses, the visitor will get into close physical contact with the Egyptian culture.
