The museum was brought about when UNESCO appealed to Egyptologists and archaeologists the world over to save Nubia’s relics from the rising waters of the dam-lake Lake Nasser. 60 expeditions rescued thousands of objects from hundreds of sites. The museum housing these relics opened 12 years later on a beautiful waterfall graded landscape.

7000 square metres of museum building and 43000 square metres of gardens and public spaces that’s the space dedicated to Nubian heritage here. The permanent indoor collections have about 1500 items. Cleverly arranged in a chronological manner, theyshowcase Numibian history from prehistory to modern times and cover pottery, statuary, sculptures, metalwork, jewellery, basketry, textiles and cooking implements. The outer grounds are landscaped with some nice garden paths to walk, Islamic buildings and relics to the North, an artificial prehistoric cave to the south (but with real prehistoric paintings), and open air theatre and a model Numibian dwelling that’s true to culture.

  • This is the best museum experience we have had in Egypt. The building is modern, attractive and cool inside. The exhibits are well laid out, well lit and have good explanations. There are also good summaries of the general history of Nubia throughout the ages. You really can you here and enjoy the place without a guide. We didn’t get any hassle at all as well, which is a first.

  • Many many great artefacts! Worth seeing them! We where in the evening. Some spots and exhibition vitrines are not lightened. They are so dark, that you cant see or read anything. Unfortunately the Museum does not close at nine PM as written on the outside, but half an hour before at 8:30 PM!!! Although the Museum was full of people, everyone had to leave immediately. Not the fine Art! Entrance fee 100 L.E.

  • The most inspirational, breathtaking site in Egypt , great architecture and atmosphere, the best organization and interpretation really

  • Well organized museum with lot of interesting artifacts. It was not crowded at all, hence spent a lot of time there. There were also displays from pre Pharoah period.

  • Well organised...good infrastructure...the gift shop is a great place to pick up cheap souvenirs
