You can see all the epochs of Sudanese ancient history, in order. Very nice, especially if you do the museum after having been in the interior of the country on the actual sites. Upstairs there is a whole floor of frescos from Byzantine Christian churches. Outside there are 3 temples rescued prior to the buidling of the Aswan Dam.

Excellent museum, had a very good guide who brought the museum to life. Really liked the huge map at the entrance, guide was able to put Sudanese history in context using the map. Many artefacts from around the country are housed here, along with a couple of reconstructed temples.

Excellent quality museum with lousy loos, no food or canteen, practically non-existent shop, dusty exhibits, no seats. Best in Sudan.

Ancient Nubian and Egyptian art as well as Greek and Coptic Christian murals. Entrance fee is very low so that shouldn't stop anyone from visiting.

Located very close to the Corinthians hotel and Nile corniche. Kind of not much on the outside, but very interesting artifacts inside. The upper Nile artifacts are interesting, but do not miss the 10th century paintings upstairs really the highlight for us.

Visited with young grandchildren Interesting but disappointed that not all items displayed were identified with information. Grandson found ancient mummified foot fascinating! Public toilets disgusting

Visiting Khartoum will not be completed unless you see the National Museum in Khartoum. It is close to Hotel Corenthia, commonly known as Grenade Hotel for its grenade like look. The Museum has got rich historical items of Nubah civilization. One needs to buy a ticket to enter by 5 SDG. It remains open since 10 am to 5 pm.... More

Need more care ! But you can feel the heritage of this country. Location is good , need extra advertising. In general , you have to visit it if you are in Khartoum.
