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.

Beautiful small museum, with different things than the Luxor or Cairo museums as also Nubian culture is represented here. Interior with not a lot of light which makes it more mysterious. Reachable by Caleche, Taxi or by foot as it is on the end of the Corniche, opposite the Old Cataract Hotel. Especially the two very big horses impressed me... More
