Cairo: The Grand Egyptian Museum is set to open its doors this years, and it is set to become the biggest museum devoted to a single civilization in the world.
Around 5,000 construction workers are working around the clock to finish the huge project near the Giza Pyramids, CNN reports.
"All means of modern technology have been taken into consideration in order to make this an unforgettable experience for the visitor, but at the same time provide the best possible environment for the artifacts,” said director general Tarek Tawfik.
The colossus of Ramses II, and the treasures of Tutankhamun will be displayed in the 5.2-million-square-foot project, which costs more than $1 billion.
A pair of 3,500-year old sandals from Tutankhamun's tomb, stand out among the artifacts that were restored by Egyptian experts, alongside other monuments that the world has never seen before.
