Interesting to see how Papyrus was made. Many lovely pieces of craftsmanship which make a distinctive souviegner and easy to transport home.

This is not a museum- it's a sales-ploy. Drivers push you to go. You get a drink and shown how papyrus is made- which is very interesting to be fair, but takes 5 minutes. However, you are then invited to look around and the pressure...More

They will try to sell you papyrus at very expensive prices that are definitely not worth it. You can buy the same papyrus from Khan el khalili about 10 pounds each.

I'm not sure how much of a museum that this is and just a place to buy stuff. There was a super quick demonstration of how to make papyrus. I would try to skip this on your tour.

Here we go again, I didn't want any more stuff to put on my walls. I think I need a bigger house the paintings and the way this material is made is fascinating. Home I went with another 4 papyrus.

Our charming "guide" explained in detail the papyrus process but unfortunately a bit too quickly for us. We purchased a mixyure of the experienced and student artworks
