Their work is beautiful and I loved the explanation. My only issue was that they are too insistent for u to buy something.. u can't really take your time to really appreciate their art cuz they're following you around every time.. but that's kinda general...More

The owner kindly tells you about how papyrus were made, which was interesting. Then after that they tell you to look around and if you need any help ask. Then the salesmen start to pressure you. They say, which one do you want, I have...More

Papyrus was history for me until my visit to this museum; thanks to Holy Land Tour and the Guide who planned the visit. The place was filled with a display of finished paintings on Papyrus! They were on sale but found the price on a...More

For just $10 us, we brought home the Eye of Horus which hangs in our kitchen as a reminder of Egypt. Learn about the creative process and wander around admiring the choices.

A must see while in Egypt! When you first walk in they give you a demo on how the papyrus paper is made - which was honestly one of the coolest things we saw on our short trip to Cairo/Giza. Then they show you this...More
