The Aswan Museum- Originally it was the villa of Sir William Willcocks who was the architect of the Aswan Dam. In 1912, this place was turned into a museum. Here, you can see many artifacts which were collected from the ruins of Abu Simbel like statues, weapons, pottery and utensils. Also there are several encased mummies belonging to different period of time put to display here. The exhibits are very well labeled in both Arabic as well as in English.
