I enjoyed my time there, although there was a power cut during the first half hour. It’s sad to see all that history being neglected and find out that some stupid people wrote their memories on ancient stones !!!!!!!

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
