The Karnak Temple Complex in Luxor is often called the biggest outdoor museum in the world.
But the last time I visited, a friend of mine said: “You must not miss to see the “Open Museum.”
Open Museum? I was puzzled, “But it is all open isn’t it?” I asked
“Yes, but there is a section apart from the main complex, the Open Museum. It is an area where art effects found later are going to be displayed. It is a work in progress.”
It was a very hot afternoon and we were only three people to visit. Oh, yes there is an entrance fee, which is very little. Maybe that is why the men at the booth asked me repeatedly if I needed the bathroom – the tip for using it was more than the few pennies for the visit, and they were happy I needed to go.
Walking passed a tomb,
a few status standing here and there,
and a large field of yet unidentified stones showing what a tremendous task it is to reconstruct the past.
It is not easy to find because it is really outside the main complex, but once you do, it will be worth your time, and if you need protection from the brutal sun of Egypt there are some beautiful trees to protect you.
More from Egypt soon
