Dr. Rajab's Papyrus Institute
Dr. Rajab, a former Egyptian ambassador, pioneered the revival of papyrus (pictured) making which had disappeared in the 10th century and holds the invention patent for the making of papyrus issued by the Egyptian Ministry of National Research. From all reports it began for Dr. Rajab as a rather academic hobby and turned into a bonanza with the pop-Egyptology craze. To cash in, Dr. Rajab opened up retail outlets all over Egypt and established his Papyrus Institute with an exhibition showing the stages of papyrus making and a history of papyrus with a papyrus emporium.
Hours: Daily 9.00am-7.00pm
