  • The people from this museum are likeable, except the woman who explains how papyrus is made. She is "yala yala", this means "buy quick or go". Also I did not pay attention, I bought 3 papyrus sign...

  • The Papyrus museam was fascinating. The whole process of watching how papyrus paper was made was so interesting. Also the various images hyrogliphed on the papyrus were beautiful to see up close

  • Went in here as it was part of our excursion.. Nice items in here but very over priced! They show you a demonstration that they seemed to be very proud of.. (lights go off) Then the paper pictures...

  • Very polite and smiley lady .she was just perfect 🥰
  • It's not a museum or an institute. It's a shop. Furthermore, it is more expensive than the rest of the markets and stores in Egypt. However, the quality of the papyrus is better than in other places.
  • Scam place don't buy anything from them. They rips people off. Especially, papyrus shop they sell oil and charge 50x price.. Be attention.
  • Much more than excellent. I you do not visit it, it mean you have not been to Egypt. Very clean place, very polite, respectable, and honest people. It is highly recommended.
  • Our guide brought us here and we are so glad he did! Hospitality at its finest. No pressure to buy. Lovely demonstration of papyrus making. We did find two pieces that we couldn't live without, and now they will include a wonderful memory of this place too. I highly recommend coming here whether you are buying or just looking.
