  • Leaving a generous 2 stars as it was my stupidity that made me buy. Was brought by guide and told its government run. Overpaid by 90% for papyrus painting. Should have done my research.

  • It's not really a museum as the art displayed is 90% new and by amateurs but you get to see how papyrus was made, the girl who showed us was VERY nice and she explained how you cut the plant itself and the rest of the process and it was free
  • This is one of the most unique stores in town! The owner was nice and kind and extremely helpful. The on-site artist and his son are also delightful and created really special gifts for us. I would highly recommend visiting this small and hidden shop!
  • 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.
  • A guide brought us there. It is not a museum. It is simple a shop. They are not very friendly. It is expansive. We bought a poster and at the end, when we unpacked at home, it was not even papyrus. It was the "fake" papyrus. Everywhere in Egypt they try to get ypur money. Don't buy where all the guides bring you. You always pay 50 -60% too much. Similar experience in Luxor with the Alabaster museum. I am over it now. I love to support these people and would like to buy stuff as I travel a lot. But now I am really over it. Never will buy in one of these shops again.
  • They show you how to make papirus. Very professional staff. (they have many language to explain to you)
