Not that amazing but you can pay half an hour visit to see little of the recent history of Sudan. Limousine section is really nice.

Firstly saw ex-state cars going back to the 1930's with a Humber, then Three Royces, and a fantastic Cadillac from the 80's which looked like a hearse. Then the actual museum in a converted church - a very beautiful building with interesting exhibits of items presented to past and present Presidents and the Political struggle from 1888 to Independence. Seriously... More

This palace by the Nile is impressive from the outside, but there are no tours. You can't even walk down the sidewalk between the palace and the river.

Try to make my kids attached with their country and familiar with all national occasions, they enjoyed the program and expected to take them every Friday 😂

The collection of cars was quite fun and the guard lifted our twins onto the bonnet of one for a photo, but the collection of items given to the president inside the church was not only dull but seemed exceptionally out of place and a huge water jug where the altar would have stood seemed slightly offensive.

The new Presidential Palace is gaudy and out of place. The President doesn't actually even live there. There are no pictures allowed, you cannot stop to take a closer look. A quick drive by is all that you'll get here.

Just a rapid stop worth it, but do not expect crazy things! Be careful with the photo you can take or not, and enjoy the Rolls Royce Cars and the little church around the palace
