TOUR EGYPT this summer without the heat and pesky flies and even peskier tourists? Want to walk around the Sphinx? Clamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza and seek out the pharaoh's burial chamber? Visit the magnificent tombs and temples of ancient Thebes?

Then check out NOVA: ONLINE PYRAMID ADVENTURE from the producers of the WGBH sciences series for PBS.

In this multi-layered, highly visual interactive, view 360° panoramas, "walkaround" photos, and other breathtaking imagery shot throughout the Giza Plateau and ancient Thebes (modern-day Luxor), often with special permission.

You'll see Old and New Kingdom tombs and temples, pyramids and statues, and a 140-foot-long wooden boat that is 4,600 years old. Enjoy this unique journey through the Land of the Pharaohs.

This clearly written and well designed site by PBS features the educational material of an episode of the award-winning NOVA science TV series presented in the format of an interactive website. 

The Online Pyramid Adventure includes clickable diagrams of four major pyramids and a high resolution gallery where you can examine 360 degree views of burial chambers and passage ways – some of which are closed to the public and can only be seen on this site!
