This is the museum to visit in Khartoum. It must have been built in the 1960s when the Aswan Dam was made. The temples from the Sudan side was moved here, and plenty of statues. Not much has happened since then, but it is still...More

At 10 Sudanese Pounds (37 pence) entry fee is great value and I would advise purchasing the guidebook to truly understand the museum. The collection in the main building on two floors explains the history of Sudan from the first stone age to modern times....More

It is a small museum, but the whole history of Sudan is presented there. First you read the chronology board that depicts its history in a nut and then you proceed to browse the artifacts, writings and sculptures. On the upper level is an insight...More

At such a low price it is not surprising that housekeeping standards are so low. The displays are good and sometimes informative but the amount of dust covering cases and lack of appropriate lighting (particularly upstairs) adversely affect our appreciation of the collection. Outside the...More

Very interesting exhibits nicely segregated by periods of Sudanese history. Plenty of little gems if you are willing to look. Impressive collection of wall painting from Christian Nubia saved by the Polish archaeologists, before being flooded by the dam on the Nile.
