The Nubian Museum is the best historical place I ever visited as it combines the pharaonic and the Nubian history and culture. I recommend everyone to visit this place.

We had the morning free, so chose to stop by the museum. It is very new and a really good place to stop. There are really good exhibits. I would suggest a visit.

Loved this museum compared with the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Well organised and explained that you want to stay longer. Nubian civilisation and excavations overtime set out carefully. Uncrowded you can take your time absorbing the exhibits.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this museum. The architecture of the building, the story of the Nubians that unwinds as you follow the path through it, and then the outdoor grounds, with an amphitheater, cave, and a view of the Unfinished Obelisk....More

The Nubian museum shows how an ancient civilization existed in a modern, well laid out format. The museum is well-lighted, air-conditioned and pleasant to stroll through while learning about an almost forgotten people. Beautiful stuff!

Very close to Basma Hotel. Well maintained Museum. You will get to see the Nubian Civilisation artefacts. In the sale counter you can buy some good mementoes at cheap price without bargaining.
