Great place to see a demonstration of how papyrus is made. I bought a piece. There is an actual demonstration too to see the process. The men there are very helpful. It does not need much time but worth a visit.

Every products were unique. Great concept still on the track. Each piece depicts story of Egyptian mythology. It's a great art turned into myth.

I was thinking this was really a museum but it was a demonstration of how papyrus is made (which was very interesting) then a sales pitch for you to purchase something. They offer to print your name in hieroglyphics on anything you bought so I...More
