  • 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!
