How to say it. Find an hour and visit this place. It's worth a trip to the Island. The owner who would be your guide as well is a really nice man with loads of information about nubian history and culture. Take it easy. Take the longer 45min Tour. It's worth it. You will leave the place with much better understanding of Egypt.
We loved this museum! Do pick the longer tour you get a better explanation of the Nubian history and culture. We knew nothing about Nubian people and was so happy to be able to learn more here. Definitely recommend.
