"Kordofan Museum" Al Ubayyid Things to Do Tip by maykal

Al Ubayyid Things to Do: 7 reviews and 6 photos

A short walk from the cathedral (depending on whether you are given the right directions or not...we weren't, and ended up right the other side of town) is the Kordofan Museum. Entry is free, and the friendly guard will open it all up for you if you arrive a little late ( we got there just before closing time). It contains hundreds of artefacts (bowls, weapons, jewellery) from various archaoelogical sites around Sudan, although strangely not much comes from the Kordofan states, as you would expect. Nevertheless, it is all quite interesting, and actually has excellent notices in near-perfect English for everything. We rushed our visit, because we felt just a little bit guilty about making the guard stay on after closing time...to fully appreciate it, go in the morning!
