A Museum at Naga
Building a new museum at Naga documents one of the most spectacular sites of the Meroitic civilisation (4th century BC to 4th century AD). The Museum has been planned by one of the world-wide known architects Mr. David Chipperfield. The idea of building a site museum at this location has been suggested by the archaeologists of the Egyptian Museum of Berlin, who have excavated and restored the site for more than 15 years.
Other museums are planned to be erected elsewhere in the future.
