The model shows the Giza plateau with the three pyramids, Chephren pyramid, Cheops pyramid and Mykerinos pyramid. The model also shows the Sphinx, temples, other tombs, the landscape, as well as what is believed to be the original course of the Nile. The pyramids are made in the correct proportions and with the right angles on their sides, so you can sense the optical illusion that the Chephren pyramid looks taller than the Cheops pyramid, although the Cheops pyramid is actually the tallest and biggest. This optical illusion is due to the Chephren pyramid being built about 5 metres higher above the Nile than the Cheops pyramid, which the model also shows because great care has been taken to ensure that there is the correct elevation on the model.
