  • This was really, really interesting. They show you how papyrus is made and processed and have many wonderful works for sale. Problem is, they try to upsell you (of course). But the artwork is first.....  more »

  • 2 stars deducted for the unbelievable price tags. Make sure that you offer 1/10th of the sticker price.
  • Very expensive. Probably four times more expensive than it should be. Don be fooled by the fact that it is called a museum, the prices listed aren't the price that they want you to pay. They expect you to haggle and give you the hard sell. Personally I would have bought a lot more if the prices are honest upfront. I don't do this haggling rubbish. Give me your best price and I will either buy it or not.
