This place is wonderful. We learnt how to make papyrus and then got to negotiate prices on some wonderful art works. Their work is very impressive! It's very difficult to leave without buying one of their paintings

We were taken to this Museum as part of the tour to the pyramids. We were greeted by a nice lady whose English was quite good. She started off by showing is how paper was made from papyrus and that part was cool. Soon after the demo was over, we were taken to the adjoining room for a "private show"(... More

I was thinking - why would they make this a Museum...it's just paper....until they began demonstrating how they strip the plant 🌱 to make the paper 😳 THIS. IS. AMAZING 😍 I learned about the hieroglyphics and even... More

They do a little demo and then you feel like you should buy some of their outrageously expensive papyrus to be polite. When your tour guide wants to take you there (he gets a cut) - just decline.

They show you how they make paper out of their plant. Pretty cool to see. The paintings are awesome. Tgey serve you a free drink too. If you buy be sure to talk them down on price.

During our visit to Cairo, my wife and I visited Egypt's Papyrus Museum. A great place, indeed to learn about the making of paper using the papyrus plant and marvel at all the beautiful paintings hanging from the walls. Also a great place to buy authentic papyrus art, which I did. Rhami, the man who helped us was knowledgeable and... More

Be prepared to walk up and down many flights of stairs. Alot of history here. Wonderful souvenirs. We were there 7 years ago and the place was loaded with solders and guns. It was a little unsettling but worth the experience. How often do you get to Cairo

A great demonstration of how papyrus was made into paper. The art work is great and a large variety to choose from. Definitely worth a stop for Art fans.
