Aswan Museum is a museum on Elephantine Island, in the south-eastern side of Aswan, Egypt.It opened to the public in 1912 and features Nubian artefacts saved during the construction of the Aswan Dam. In 1990 a new extension was added displaying findings discovered on Elephantine Island itself, like utensils, weapons, pottery and mummies.
The museum is close to the Ruins of Abu, where excavations are still taking place.
