Off to the left (north) of the first court of the Amun Temple Enclosure is Karnak’s open-air museum. This museum is missed by most visitors but is definitely worth a look. The well-preserved chapels include the White Chapel of Sesostris I , one of the oldest and most beautiful monuments in Karnak, which has wonderful Middle Kingdom reliefs; the Red Chapel of Hatshepsut , its red quartzite blocks reassembled in 2000; and the Alabaster Chapel of Amenhotep I . The museum also contains a collection of statuary found throughout the temple complex.
