About Nubian Museum, Aswan

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.

Nubian Museum, Aswan Reviews

  • Very huge and rich Museum almost the richest museum I ever visited ( and I visited a lot ). It has very good and detailed exhibition, timeline and pathway. A lot of stories for each section. You will find there what you were looking for in the history of upper Egypt and Nubia. You will have to pay 50 L.E for taking photos and extra 10 L.E if you are using tripod. It opens two times a day up to 8 pm.

  • If you're interested to know a lot more about Nubian history and.culture, this is the place for you. Great collection of Nubian artefacts. Well preserved mummy. Need to spend a bit of time to appreciate what's showcased.

  • Very well design, spacious... I would visit in the morning next time. We went late and the outside area which is really nice to explore was all dark and they don't put lights there. The inside of the museum is very well designed and arranged historically nice. Ticket is 10egp for Egyptians and 100 egp for foreigners... Ridiculous difference. But still worth it. Lots of stairs just to get there.. A good walk. Elevators aren't working inside so we had to carry our stroller up and down the stairs..

  • One of the best museums i have ever seen. Very organized and descriptive. It is highly recommended to vist this museum to know the history of Al Nuba

  • intresting place to know more about temples & nations which lived on Egypt in the history ..but unfortunately we can't take photo in the museum without permission
