Nubian Museum reviews
This museum was right next to our hotel, so we spent about 2 hours there after our Abu Simbal tour was over. It is easy to walk, and contains relics from 6000+ years ago right up to the modern day... more »
Highly recommended museum for Nubian history and culture. It’s newly renovated with amazing artefacts, statues and monuments. 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.
