The ministry of tourism and antiquities decided to close down the Cheops boat museum ( Solar boat Museum) located at the site of the Giza pyramids and to suspend all visits to it temporarily. This decision was taken in order to prepare moving the vessel from its current location ( Pyramids area) to the restoration section of the GEM “Grand Egyptian Museum” as it is going to be part of the exhibited items there. 

The decision was announced on August 08th 2020. ​
