  • Absolutely worth visiting. The Museum is housed in a former convent in 1670 and is dedicated entirely on papyrus plant and its uses. Admission for students is only 2 euros. SPECTACULAR

  • Quieter interesting but not small museum.
  • Really good museum with good exhibition telling the history of papyrus, and modern efforts to reconstruct ancient techniques. Housed in a nice building with actual research ongoing and the pre eminent scholar in the field in the museum.
  • Google Maps photo does not match the Museo del Papiro "Corrado Basile"
