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.
