"Minister of Culture Farouq Hosni will open next March the first World Visitors Center in the Valley of Kings. Dr. Zahi Hawwas, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), said the Center is established 400m far from the tombs area. Ali Hilal, director of the SCA projects sector, said the LE 20 million project aims to protect more than 60 royal tombs in the area. It is also meant to highlight history of the antiquities in the area as well as raising the citizens' awareness."

A very good idea and long overdue. Makes a return to the Valley tempting.
