“A Scroll or Two?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Fascinating to view some fabulous old art and take a few samples (reproductions of course!) home with you for the study walls. Some gorgeous calligraphy and fine examples of ancient hieroglyphics on display here.

This was not on my schedule but I was asked if I would like to visit and I am very pleased I did. The workshops and papyrus works were fascinating.

“Cool shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

You can see and participate in making papyrus. You will also get a history of the importance of papyrus in Egypt's history. If you decide to buy be sure that you ask for the tube packaging, my packaging lasted the two weeks I traveled Egypt.

“Good demonstration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

The demonstration of how papyrus is made is really good but there is not enough room for a bus load of people to see at once.There are small inexpensive items to buy like bookmarks as well as large paintings on papyrus, The best thing though is the clean toilets after none at the Sphinx!!!
