This book is informative and would be great to read before visiting a museum, as it answers the question of how the sphinx got to the museum. It does a good job at talking through all of the history pretty thoroughly, though it did seem really repetitive to me as it follows the pattern of "There Was An Old Women Who Swallowed a Fly" by building upon each new step of how the sphinx got to the museum and restates it each page.
