People who love history will enjoy this museum. One hour is sufficient (it is only two floors). The bathrooms have zero supplies (soap, toilet paper, paper towels).

Sadly the place is run on peanuts and it shows at every turn. The Sudanese treasures are lovelessly presented in poor light and dusty vitrines. The sleepy guards gathered in front of a fan made in Korea have no other interest than to go home,...More

Very well presented, this museum gives and excellent overview of Sudans rich history. Highly recommended before e.g. visiting the pyramides. Interesting witnesses of the times of the "black Pharaos" which ruled Egypt from Khartoum for 200 years

An interesting look at the history of Sudan... very cheap to visit. I wasn't overwhelmingly impressed with the items in the museum, but some were nice. You can take photos and it was air conditioned. I would recommend doing it if you are in Khartoum...More
