Good museum but could be better organised and would be easier to follow if simple information leaflets were produced. It would also be helpful if postcards of some of the exhibits were available to buy. The bathrooms here were really dirty.

The Museum is a good starting point of any tour in Sudan so that when reaching near-empty archeological sites across the country you can visualize the ancient grandeur. Translation into English available for most of the items in display.

This was really a highlight of Khartoum. Seeing the artifacts and well described displays gave an excellent setup for the following 9 days of travel.
