The Sand Museum is located south of Hurghada and includes more than 40 sand-carved statues of legendary figures from the modern and ancient era, representing most of the world's civilizations, including the Pharaonic civilization, and figures of the seven wonders of the world, the pyramids, and the Sphinx.

The Sand Museum is one of the unique museums of its kind in the Middle East and the continent of Africa. It is located on the map of tourist attractions in Hurghada, as it includes attractive sand statues carved by international artists, from different countries.

Among those statues are a statue of Napoleon Bonaparte, Queen Isis and Cleopatra, Alexander the Great, and Sultan Muhammad. Al-Fatih, and an area for cartoon statues beloved by children in the modern era, Batman and Spiderman.

The museum also includes professional technicians who work on the periodic and continuous restoration of the statues, in case they are exposed to bad weather factors, which always cause them to collapse when it rains.

He explained that Egyptian sand was used in the process of carving the statues, called yellow and white sand, which is characterized by a low percentage of salinity, pointing out that there is an adhesive substance placed on top of the sand cubes before carving the statues so that grains of sand do not fall easily.

And the Sand Sculpture Museum is made of 42 sculptures and 17 engravings by artists from different countries around the world. Some sand sculpture artists gathered from several places in the world to carve statues in the open air on the sand, but in a very specific and precise way that is distinguished by very few people around the world, which makes the statues carved on sand withstand harsh weather conditions such as strong winds, rain or snow.

42 world-class sculptors from different countries, including Russia, Germany, America, and Turkey, participated in the process of carving statues inside the Sand Museum, stressing that 12,000 tons of sand and 15,000 tons of water were used, and the work took 7 months.
