Nubian Museum - Review
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
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.
Great place with a lot explanation from the first Egyptian civilization & The Nubian people who were the first creating hieroglyphs.
Excellent treasures of ancient nubia and merger of egyptian culture.
A very informative and impressive museum. It's quite big and well set out. There's a lot of information about numbian culture from 6,000 BC to now. The museum provides information about the changing cultures and religions. There's a good collection of stone tools, pottery, clothing, carved stones, statues and a few mummies too. There's also quite a nice and big garden outside. It's costs extra to take photos inside.
Nice, newer museum, with good information and artifacts on Nubian history and culture. Worth visiting, and a good place to escape the heat. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, foreigners are charged much higher prices (looked to be 5x the price of admission for locals). Closes for the day at 3pm (15h) during Ramadan.
