The treasures displayed within the rather faded building are truly wonderful. The Coptic Christian frescoes, saved from and old church drowned by lake Nasser, are particularly good.don't expect western display style just soak up the artefacts and with much of Sudan you have the place almost to yourself.

Khartoum University has some nice buildings, but unless you are studying there I can't see what you'd get from a visit. Worth a drive past, but nothing more than that.

The students of this university changed two dictatorships during the twentieth century long before the phenomenal Arab spring. The buildings are more than one hundred years old, smelling of a rich history and famous influential names. A lot of political debates can still be witnessed on the university main road. Many of them are bitterly criticizing the current government.
