  • Extremely interesting and the staff are so friendly!
  • This museum allows one to travel through seven millennia of Egyptian history by focusing on the development of textiles which were influenced by and reflected events and trends in day-to-day life as well as in history, art, religion, politics, culture, commerce, and economics. Both the groupings under different themes and individual pieces on exhibit have clear, well-written descriptions in English. The staff was very courteous and there are some worthwhile items in the gift shop. Allow a minimum of four hours to get the benefit of what is on display.
