The building is shaped like a chamfered triangle in plan. It sits on a site two kilometers west of the pyramids, near a motorway interchange. The building’s north and south walls line up directly with the Great Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Menkaure. In front of the building is a large plaza, filled with date plants. One of the main features of the museum is the translucent stone wall, made of alabaster, that makes up the front facade of the building. Inside the main entrance is a large atrium, where large statues will be exhibited.

建築物的形狀像倒角的三角形。 它位於金字塔以西兩公里處的一個站點,靠近高速公路立交橋。 建築物的南北壁與胡夫大金字塔和門考爾金字塔直接對齊。 大樓前是一個大廣場,上面擺滿了棗樹。 博物館的主要特色之一是由雪花石膏製成的半透明石牆,構成了建築物的正面。 正門內是一個大型中庭,將展示大型雕像。

On 2 February 2010, Hill International announced that Egypt’s Ministry of Culture had signed a contract with a joint venture of Hill and EHAF Consulting Engineers to provide project management services during the design and construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum.
