The Nubian Museum in Aswan
The majority of the objects from Nubia are kept in the museum in Asuan, Egypt, which is called the Museo de Nubia.
What an amazing museum! The beauty of the Nubian Museum is not only in its rich historical content but also in its stunning architectural design. The Nubia Museum was opened in 1997 in cooperation with UNESCO and the Egyptian government in ِAswan and is considered an academic museum. It does not only display artifacts of great value and importance but also displays the Nubian heritage and their most prominent customs and traditions in paintings made of remarkable forms, as well as laboratories and an important library specializing in history books, especially on the history of ancient Nubia, it is a destination for visitors and scholars as well.
The museum houses truly unique finds that go back from the prehistoric ages through the Pharaonic era, passing through Christianity in Egypt and the Islamic conquest up to the construction of the High Dam in the 1960s. Some of the most important monuments of Nubia were transferred to neighboring areas, such as the Abu Simbel temples and the Temple of Philae in Aswan. In this small but nice museum, many examples of local art are collected and various moments of Nubian life have been restored. It is truly exciting for the visitor to see these scenes of everyday life with traditional houses, recovered from areas currently submerged, masterfully rebuilt.
The museum includes very important exhibits that reflect the ability of the ancient Egyptians in many fields. Among the artifacts is the statue of Ramses II, a human skull showing the oldest Turbine operation in history. The owner of the skull was able to live after undergoing this process because he suffered a brain injury for about 20 years. Egypt is still a great tourist destination because its history is at the origin of what the world is today.
