Another papyrus museum where you can listen to the explanation of the working of the papyrus. They have acceptable prices, maybe lower than some others. If you are good to bargaring, you will be able to take home some beautiful scrolls at a great price.

A very interesting demo. on how Papyrus is made, and how to tell a genuine papyrus from banana skin. There are lots to buy, but the quality here is much better than outside.

Fascinating to see how the papyrus is made. The art work is beautiful, however, they started of with the most expensive prices which was a bit off putting. Start lower and if customers want to spend more they will.

This is not a Museum it is a gift shop selling Papyrus picture's of all thing's Egyptian, well worth a visit if you want this type of souvenier of your holiday. If you are interested the owner/staff will demonstrate how Papyrus is made.

Good museum but more like a souvenier shop. The staff were helpful but more like salesmen. They did give us a good price on the items we bought.

But you can find always nice gifts to buy or buy papyrus you like to decorate your home. Take care with the papyrus and you will have it for many times. People are very nice.
