The Nubians had an important culture, contributing greatly to the magnificence of Ancient Egypt. We learned a lot. Plus it was a very pleasant space, leading to a good experience.

The museum does a good job in explaining the history of Nubia from pre-historic times through the relocation of the sites following the damming of the Nile. The exhibits are well-presented with explanatory text. Well worth a visit
