Well explore the Papyrus Museum's almost 400 exhibitions of ancient writings and learn things you never knew you wanted to know. Get a direct insight into the sorrows and joys of everyday life in bygone times along with new understandings of ancient religious and literary texts. 

    Spanning from 15 BC to 16 AD the permanent exhibition features copies of works from Egyptian, Greek and Latin literature, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and ancient versions of religious texts including the Bible and the Quran. As well as these books of cultural and historical interest you'll find artifacts known as semi-literary documents, which include magical and ritual texts and writings on astrology, natural science and medicine. 

    You'll also get to see the famous Tabula Peutingeriana – the only known map of the late antiquity Roman road network, recently declared a UNESCO Memory of the World.  

    The Papyrus Museum will give you an overview of a wide range of everyday texts from ancient Greek and Roman times, as well as covering the emergence of the Byzantine and Arab Middle Ages too!
