Despite its tiny size the museum is worth a visit. Especially interesting the items from South Sudan in the first room and jewlery from Darfur. As a suggestion the translation cards could also add the estimated age of the artcraft.

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

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.
