The paper aimed to describe the Nile Museum in Aswan, which is one of the most important specialized museums in Egypt, due to the great significance of the Nile River. The museum exhibition used to depend on the type of artifact or its era until recently. However, the new approach is for these artifacts to tell a story about an era, manufacturing method, artistic style, or way of life. The museum guide can narrate a captivating story to attract visitors. Therefore, the importance of this study lies in its unique focus on one of the main museums that document the history of the Nile River. The museum houses numerous artifacts that tell the story of the Nile River's flow in Egypt across different historical periods, starting from ancient Egyptian times to the modern era. The study also covers a wide range of artistic artifacts that are being published for the first time, including tools and equipment related to the Aswan Reservoir and the High Dam, coins, stamps, and ethnographic artifacts.
