A wealth of wonderful exhibits and great grounds, which also incorporate museum elements. Things are labelled and well presented - but it would be worth doing a bit of reading beforehand.

Perfect built and annotated museum. Very cheep. Has a simple serpentine pathway to follow in order not to miss anything. Has all about Nubia from prehistory up to now. The only bad thing that it is opened only from 9 am to 1 pm and from 4 to 8:30 pm.

I have seen just about every museum in London etc and have been bored by the "best". However, I really liked this one. It contained just the right amount of "stuff" with just the right amount of information laid out in an excellent floor plan. I learned lot and actually remember most of it!!!
