Perfect to spend 1-2 hours during noon. It is uphill and might be hard to walk during hot summer months.

A very in depth an well put together museum detailing the history of Nubian civilization from 6000BC to modern day. I'm glad this exists and wish that every culture had such a repository in this world. Your £50 entry fee is going to a great cause here. In addition to all of the historical artifacts, the outdoor garden and grounds are beautiful to take a stroll and provide a nice view of the Fatimid cemetery. Walkable from the corniche area hotels in 15min.

This is an excellent museum, one of the best I've visited in Egypt.
Displays are well presented & information easy to read.
Located up the hill past the Old Cataract Hotel. I was told it was a short walk from the centre of Aswan, but I recommend a taxi if it is too hot or you are not very fit.
Photography is allowed without flash.
A definite must if you are interested in ancient Egypt.

For those of us who like to put things together in chronological order, this museum is a must! It was so well arranged and you could really spend a long time there reading everything. The model of the Nubian village was also something different from other Egyptian museums I have seen.
