- The ancient Egyptian craft of papyrus-making died out around the 10th century AD but was revived over 1,000 years later by Dr. Ragab, who conceived the idea of building a museum to demonstrate its ancient techniques. Here you will see papyrus go from grass to decorated wall piece and all the steps in between. The museum details the papyrus making process and its attached art gallery regularly holds exhibitions. More than anything, the boat functions as a papyrus showroom with some of the most expensive, though best quality, papyrus art in Egypt.
