International Museum of Nubia, Egypt

The Nubian Museum is located in Aswan; the building has three floors for displaying and housing, in addition to a library and information center. The largest part of the museum is occupied by the monumental pieces, reflecting phases of the development of the Nubian culture and civilization. (The Nubians are an ethnic group originally from northern Sudan, and southern Egypt.)

Here is the entrance of Nubian Museum, you have to pay an admission fee.

The Nubian Museum is splendid and interesting. But I do not strongly recommend it. This area is too dangerous. You should wait for a decade.
