The museum contains some amazing and beautiful ancient statues and artwork. You can read about the history of the Nubians and enjoy gazing at some ancient statues. This is certainly a place worth visiting while in Aswan.

With a visit if you are interested in the history of the Nubian culture. There are some nice artefacts and statues. The museum has a garden. Didn't visit as it was 48 Celsius in the shade. The ticket price is fairly high.
