They Hve Just Built The Biggest Museum In The World Cos Most Of The Mummies They Hve Dug Up Hve Just Been Stuck In Boxes Cos There Is Not Enough Room To Show Them All.. So This New Museum Is Lyk Half A Million Square Metres Of Space Cos They Hve 100,000 Things That They Want To Show Ya.. There Is 3,000 Tutankhamun Things That No One Has Ever Seen Yet.. When They Were Dug Up A Hundred Years Ago They Were Just Put In Boxes && Put In Storage && They Have Been There Ever Since.. So They Hve Built This New Grand Egyptian Museum && It Has Cost Lyk A Billion Dollars To Build.. Its Not Open Yet, It Has Been Delayed Cos Of The Rona Bt Should Be Open Next Year..
The Actual Buildin Is Nearly Finished Bt It Is Goin To Take Six Months To Move All The Stuff Into The Museum.. They Are Callin It Egypts Gift To The World && They Say That Ya Could Park A Jumbo Jet In The Main Hall.. They Hve Built It Mostly To Try && Get People To Go On Holiday There Again Cos They Stopped Cos Of The Riots && Demonstrations A Few Years Ago.. It Is Near The Pyramids Of Giza && Will Hve Hundreds Of Statues Of Pharaohs && Gods Includin A Massive Statue Of Ramses The Great.. Its Absolutely Massive With Loads Of Shops, Restaurants, Conference Centres && Even A Big Cinema..
The Star Attraction Will Be All 5,600 Things Frm The Tomb Of King Tutankhamun.. The Program I Was Watchin Showed Them Restorin His Chariot Which Is Goin On Display.. They Hve Even Made A Reconstruction Of His Tomb Even Though The Space Is 60 Times Bigger Than His Original Tomb.. Tutankhamuns Outer Coffin Will Be On Display Plus His Two Inner Coffins.. They Reckon They Will Hve 2 To 3 Million Visitors In The First Year && About 8 Million A Year Once It Is Fully Up && Running.. It Has Taken 20 Years To Create Frm Comin Up With The Original Plans To Hopefully Openin It Next Year..
One Of The Things I Loved The Look Of Is They Are Goin To Hve These Workshops Where They Show Ya How They Did Things.. Lyk How They Built The Pyramids, How They Made The Mummies && Loads Of Other Stuff.. The Maddest Part For Me Was Makin The Mummies.. The Ancient Egyptians Believed That Ya Needed Stuff For The Afterlife.. Lyk Ya Chariots && Weapons Bt They Also Thought That Ya Might Need Ya Brain && Heart && All Ya Internal Organs.. So They Took All Ya Organs Out && Put Them In A Box To Be Buried With Ya.. F*Ckin Hell, If Ya Needed Ya Organs I Would Of Thought That Ya Would Need Them Inside Ya Not In A Bloody Box!!
The Museum Itself Is Right In The Middle Of The Desert Between Modern Cairo && The Ancient Pyramids.. It Will Cover 3,000 Years Of Ancient Egyptian History && Has Been Designed To Take Visitors Back Through The Centuries To Ancient Egypt.. All The Displays Are In Chronological Order So It Is Lyk Goin Back In Time.. The Further Ya Go, The Further Back In Time That Ya Travel.. You Will Be Able To See The Pyramids Of Khufu && Menkaure Through The Glass Walls Of The Galleries.. Loads Of Stuff Is Bein Moved Frm The Original Egyptian Museum In Cairo Bt Not All Of Them.. The Old Museum Is Stayin Open Even After The New One Opens.. The One Thing That I Would Want To See Is Tutankhamuns Death Mask Bt The Program Didnt Say Where That Was Goin To Be.. If I Do Go Then I Will Check Where That Is Before I Go Cos If I Couldnt See That I Would Be Well Piss Off..
Here Is The Mad Thing.. Davidd Said He Has Been To Egypt Three Times Bt Has Never Seen A Pyramid Except Frm The Window Of A Plane.. He Did Say It Is Too Hot To Be Walkin All Day In Egypt Where It Is Normally 40°C Every Day && He Only Goes Cos Ya Gauranteed The Sun Bt I Would Want To See The Mummies For Sure.. I Went && Saw A Load Off Egyptian Stuff At Liverpool Museum Years Ago When I Was At School && It Was Dead Exciting.. I Loved Tha..
Imagine How Cool It Would Be Seein Tuts Death Mask For Real??
