I really enjoyed the visit to this museum, with the Kushite and Meroenic exhibits downstairs and the surprising Christian exhibits upstairs. There are some wonderful exhibits in all sections, but for me the main attraction is that so many of them are completely in the...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

Worth visiting if in the neighbourhood. See if you can get a guide who can give you very interesting voice over.

Do visit this museum when you are in Khartoum. It has some excellent exhibits and puts the Egypt-Sudan relationship over the millenia and the 'black pharaohs' in perspective. Give your visit a couple of hours.

I found particularly interesting the section on the first floor of christian...More

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....More
