Experience the history of Sudan

Founded in 1971, the Sudan National Museum houses the largest and most significant archaeological collection in the country. Containing exhibitions from the different eras throughout Sudanese history, including the ancient Kush kingdom, the Christian period of the Nubia and Pharaonic statues of Pharos, the museum is well worth a visit. The gardens of the museum house the ruins of two beautiful temples from around 1490 BC, the Buhen and Semna built by Queen Hatshepsut and Pharaoh Thutmose III respectively, which were relocated away from the submergence area of Lake Nasser, created by the Nasser Dam.
