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

  • Impressive museum that is certainly worth a look if you're in Aswan for more than just Philae Temple and the random stop at the High Dam.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Nubian Museum covers an area of 50,000 square meters, 7,000 of which are devoted to the building, while the rest are devoted to gardens and other public spaces. The building has three floors for displaying and housing, in addition to a library and information center. The largest part of the museum is occupied by the monumental pieces, reflecting phases of the development of Nubian culture and civilization. Contents Three thousand pieces of Egyptian antiquities, representing various ages; Geological, Pharaonic, Roman, Coptic and Islamic, were registered. The open-door exhibition includes 90 rare monumental pieces, while the internal halls contain 50 invaluable pieces dating back to pre-historic times, 503 pieces belong to the Pharaonic period, 52 to the Coptic era, 103 to the Islamic age, 140 to the Nubian era, in addition to 360 pieces reflecting the history of Aswan.

  • A very well organized museum teĺling about the Nubian history through ages starting from premative & old Egyptian dynasty until modern days
