This museum was right next to our hotel, so we spent about 2 hours there after our Abu Simbal tour was over. It is easy to walk, and contains relics from 6000+ years ago right up to the modern day. When we went, December 2020, the garden area was closed because demand was low. It wasn't busy, and they had it set up so you have to go one way (to prevent COVID from spreading). I'd recommend it for a couple of hours.

The museum is very well organized and it has precious monuments from different historical eras. The 3D model of the Nile River at the entrance is amazing.

The Nubian Museum is situated across the road from the Basma Hotel and the Cataract Hotel. Once past the security checkpoint, the entrance to the museum and the surrounds are a lovely peaceful garden. One of the features of the gardens is a winding water course which appears to be unfinished. Numerous stelae and bits of ancient walls can be found in the gardens along with some lovely trees and shrubbery from the area. The entrance features a small alter that has baboons symbolizing Thoth the god of wisdom and writing. The pictorial history of the expedition to save Nubian monuments is one of the highlights of this museum. The museum features large dioramas that depict Nubian life through the ages, Nubian and Egyptian statuary detailing comparisons, mummies and some fine examples of Christian and early Islamic handicrafts. This was my second visit to this museum (first time in 2010) and there were more people visiting which did make it difficult at times to view some of the exhibits. The museum itself is a modern, well air-conditioned building with many interesting exhibits. A highlight of this visit was that I got into a conversation with a Coptic priest while viewing the Christian artworks. He even asked me about the bush fires occurring in Australia after he asked where I was from.

I know I keep mentioning a "must stop" so many locations are, you need so much time to Explore Egypt! But this museum is really nice, so many artifacts, just amazing! Really well laid out and easy access for anybody to get around. Air conditioned and very clean restrooms.
