  • I was disappointed that almost the most important papyrus in the museum, that is, the Book of the Dead, has no English panel text explanation, while most of others have. However, i was amused by one papyrus on property sale agreement in which it ends with "may the consequences mentioned in the Apocalypse befall on the one who dissolves this agreement". 😊
  • Small museum but with fairly extensive collection of papyri. The documents are very interesting and show all different aspects of life in ancient antiquity. Worth a visit.
  • Not worth visiting unless you get access to it via a museum pass as its artefacts are limited. It does hold a vast piece of papyrus but this piece could have easily be a part of a larger museum.
  • Small museum dedicated to papyrus. It is in the basement of the library, and if you are into ancient paper, take a gander here.
  • Extremely interesting pieces. Some of the descriptions are only in German which isnt helpful.
