The Nubian Museum in Aswan was created specifically to preserve the story of this ancient society and also to educate visitors and travelers about their history, both in Egypt and Sudan. If museums are your thing, you will quite literally be bowled over when you visit the Nubian Museum. The place is massive, and it’s home to more than three thousand artifacts and antiquities which are all beautifully displayed.
The pieces range from the prehistoric to the geological, and they cover every era of Nubian history. Guests will be treated to displays that talk about the Nubians during the times of the pharaohs, the Copts, the Romans, and in the modern era. They will discover that the Nubian people are now scattered due to the political divisions between Egypt and Sudan, and that many live near the borders and even as far north as Cairo.
Located on a natural rise, the location offers visitors a spectacular view of the entire landscape – including the majestic Nile River which lies to the east of the museum. It really does cover an enormous amount territory, although at present the existing building itself covers only a small amount of the land that has been handed over to the museum. However, there are plans to expand the complex and to add additional gardens.
The museum’s collection covers the historic periods dating from prehistory through to Egyptian Domination, on to the Christian Period in Egypt, the Islamic Period and into modern Nubia.
