This relatively new museum is well worth a visit. The presentation and interpretation of its collection of objects from the regions above the lower cataracts of the Nile is very well done and helps the visitor understand an aspect of Egyptian civilization significantly differerent from what one experiences in the musea of Luxor or Lower Egypt.

Spent two hours walking through the new and spacious museum. The exhibit is organized chronologically and most interesting for the prehistory through the evolution of the culture. Near the end of the tour the distinctively Nubian character of the early history gets diluted by classic Egyptian history - to be expected due to the intertwined history of the two regions.

Nicely put together, this history of Nubia has some interesting exhibits including a model,of Abu Simbel before and after its relocation, and some good exhibits of Nubian life. Nice garden, clean and quiet.
