A very interesting museum to visit is the National Museum of Sudan in Khartoum. It has an interesting history as well. It was originally established in the faculty of arts within University of Khartoum back in 1904. Construction on a separate building began in the 1960s.
Finally in 1971 the museum opened its doors to visitors who came from all over the world. Being located on Nile Street, right on the spot where the two rivers cross is really cool and extremely meaningful.
The museum is pretty rich with African heritage! It’s a great construction where you can find yourself lost between histories of different cultures of various times. Some of its contents even go back to before history!!
The building and its surrounding gardens house the largest and most comprehensive Nubian archaeological collection in the world. In particular it houses collections of these periods of the history of Sudan: Mesolithic, Neolithic, Kerma Culture, Middle Kingdom of Egypt, New Kingdom of Egypt, Napata, Meroë, and medieval Makuria.
When visiting the building you can also enjoy a walk through the Christian and Islamic periods that have had a huge effect on the Sudan.
You are also to find temples from the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, statues of a pharaoh or from the Meroitic Kingdom and the Kush Kingdom. If you are like, me you’d enjoy the stories that these pieces of history tell you. I suggest that you treat yourself to a journey of some sweet imagination. My favorite place is the garden. It is a fantastic open-air museum, which is very enjoyable to walk thorough especially when the weather is nice!
Folklore and traditional food
One of the most eaten foods in Sudan is Mulah! Mulah is cooked in different ways and with a huge variety of fresh vegetables such as Mulukheya, Okra, and Salij. It’s a stew blend that is blent originally by hand using a traditional tool called Mufrakah. Mulah is also eaten with different types of carbohydrates, originating from parts of the big country, like Kisra, Aseeda or Gorasa.
Sudan’s foreign eyes
I’m always amazed by the hospitality of the Sudanese people, we’re always invited to peoples homes and we’re always showered with attention and positivity.
Sudanese food is full of flavor, it awakens your taste buds in every bite
The most outstanding tradition, in my opinion, are Sudanese weddings. They’re always huge and last for days and the music is full of vibes.
