After more than a decade of construction, Egypt’s new mega-museum will be ready to open in 2020 — but the opening has already been delayed many times.

The Grand Egyptian Museum will showcase Egypt’s ancient treasures. The money it collects from tourists will help pay for future development. Costs have already soared from the original $650 million (\72 billion) to well over $1 billion (\110 billion). Most of the financing comes from Japan.

“It’s a place where you can linger to enjoy ancient Egypt,” project director Tarek Tawfik said on a recent tour of the site. The completed site will include a conference center, a cinema, 28 shops, 10 restaurants and a boutique hotel.

The hope is that the museum will boost the tourism industry. It has yet to recover from the 2011 uprising. Protesters staged massive demonstrations against Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. He resigned in February 2011. (AP)
