Small but well presented collection which documents the culture and language of the many tribes and ethnic groups in Sudan

I had a tour by the director of the museum and this made my visit very interesting. There is so much history here and it was so interesting to hear about the history of Sudan and especially that they do have more pyramids than Egypt - much smaller though.

The Ethnographic Museum might not be very big but it's free and features some fascinating artefacts from all parts of Sudan. Visiting takes maybe an hour. During lunch time you might find Khartoumians enjoying a sandwich in the shade of the pergola in the museums garden. There are some delicious falafel places around.

the only worth mentioning item is the huge wooden drum in the entrance . All the other items are a poor ordinary collection from those you can find in any market. No jewllery , no information about the people who live in Sudan., It is free but not worth the trouble to go there.

This is a good museum, interesting but regrettably much to small. I thing parts were closed for renovation, but it is still worth the visit.

I visited this museum during a free afternoon while traveling in Khartoum. It is located in central Khartoum, just opposite the main bridge to Khartoum North at a major intersection. It is a relatively quiet place in the midst of a very noisy and traffic-filled part of the city. This is not a premier attraction. For that, go to the... More
