Museum of Aswan


Since 1912 this small museum, seen from the river, has been installed in the villa that belonged to William Wellicocks, the English engineer who designed the Old Dam of Aswan. In fact it has all the appearance of a charming inviting colonial house, with a veranda opening out onto the garden, flowers and plants growing all around. The archaeological finds in the museum all come from excavations undertaken in Aswan and other sites in Lower Nubia.
