We were given a demonstration of how they make the paper. Very interesting. We bought a beautiful painting of the pyramids, which they wrapped up safely and it made it through our whole tour and home with no issue. It was probably the most expensive...More

One of a number of "museums" trying to strong arm tourists into buying unnecessary junk. After the 30 second demonstration of how the stuff is made (essentially leave it in water then press) you will be granted the "opportunity" to acquire a treasure. If you...More
