Tomb of Tutkankhamun in Luxor
Cairo - MENA

Nearly 2,000 artifacts of the belongings of Egypt's most famous Pharaoh Tutankhamon have been transferred from storehouses to the Grand Egyptian Museum, located in the Giza Pyramids' area.

The moved items are part of the "boy king's" collection of 4,500 artifacts that will be transferred as well according to a timetable with the last piece expected to arrive in late 2017 for the partial inauguration of the museum in May 2018, museum general supervisor Tareq Tawfiq told MENA.

A hall at the museum built on a 7,500 square meter area, seven-fold the size of the one in Tahrir Square's Egyptian Museum, is allocated specifically for the treasures of the Golden King, he said on the sidelines of an international conference held at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization on Sunday.

The site chosen for the Grand Egyptian Museum is only 2 km from the legendary Pyramids. Nested between the ancient Great Pyramids and the modern city of Cairo, at the junction between dry desert and the fertile floodplain, the Grand Museum is a portal to the past. The Giza plateau Memphis and its Necropolis nominated by UNESCO among the world Cultural Heritage Sites, contains irreplaceable monuments from across time. The museum complex will be built on a plot of land approximately 117 feddans, about 480,000 square meters.
