Nubian Museum reviews
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... more »
An outstanding presentation of the Nubian History. It takes you from the ancient history to the Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic periods. The final displays of Nubian life are spectacular. more »
One Egypt’s nicest museums. It would get a five star rating but the ticket salesmen would not give me the proper change for the longest time. Well organized and nice artifacts on display.
This was the most unexpected find in Egypt. It's actually a very high quality museum that tells the whole history of the Nubian area from prehistoric humans through the UNESCO project to save Egyptian monuments from the flooding caused by the Aswan High Dam in the mid 1900s. The museum is small and has limited artifacts, but the story it tells is very complete. I am sad to say that I wish the Egyptian Museum in Cairo was even a quarter put together as the Nubian Museum. Very well done and worth the afternoon to visit.
