The show itself is a bit dated and needs a revamp. It has an interesting narrative telling the story of Egypt and the pyramids. You can get great photos of the pyramids lit up with lasers. Worth seeing if you have time.

If you get the opportunity to do this take it!! It was one of my favourite things to do in Cairo, it's a overview of ancient Egyptian history and makes the pyramids look even more awe inspiring. A must when in Cairo
