Given the fact Sudan has 597 different ethnic groups that speak over 400 different languages and dialects, what can be observed in this museum is only a very small fraction of the richness in variety the country harbors. The fragments on show are interesting though....More

A smallish national museum with fine material well presented. The general air of the museum however is of benign neglect.

Great museum, although it is small there are some interesting things to see. And you don t pay entrance fee so it does nt matter that it takes only 20 - 30 minutes to see all.

Great but dusty exhibits on the different tribes inhabiting the different climates of Sudan. Watch out for the opening hours - they are closing quite early (3 pm).

Only half the collection was available the day we went, but it was a very nice selection of different tribes from both North and South Sudan.

Modern, small but very well structured to give an idea of the real life of nomadic tribes in Sudan, their ornaments, jewelry, crafts and of their daily life activities, from self-defense to haunting. Well worth a visit.

This is a very interesting museum for those interested in life of local people in the past and now. It shows the richness of the desert culture as well as the land that is now the South Sudan. The most impressive is a gigantic war...More
