A very well organised museum , which allows the visitor to understand the history of Nubia from the ancient times to the medieval and modern times. A lot of exhibits , including mummies in their sarcophagus and countless items and statues

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!!!

I really, REALLY loved this museum! Nubian history is fascinating, so much intertwined with Egyptian but also distinct and interesting on it's own.

Better than the museum in Cairo by far, the exhibits were well laid out and told a good story. Don't need a guide to help you. Check out the red granite shaven head man status.
