  • 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.
