The ground floor galleries take you on a trip through time, each room filled with the splendours of a great kingdom. King Narmer’s 5,000 year old palette is an item of major artistic and historical importance.

They were constructed about 2500 BC with blocks of limestone from the plateau and from the Turah hills on the outskirts of Cairo. The Great Pyramid of Cheops alone, the only present-day survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, required over 2,300,000 blocks of stone, each weighing about 2.5 tons.
