The Papyrus Museum is located in Genena City Mall in Sharm el-Sheikh. It is decorated in a modern style, but takes you to older times, as it displays papyrus cards, invitations and letters, which date back to the Pharaonic ages that illustrate Pharaonic habits and traditions, along with depictions of kings and queens. The museum also includes the intriguing history of papyrus making.
