The Papyrus Museum regularly presents objects from the Papyrus collection in exhibitions on specific topics.
The Papyrus Museum is a "museum of the cultures of Egypt". It is the written heritage of all those who over the millennia lived on the Nile and experienced the influences of the most varied cultures. That proximity and mixing of cultures is visible with particular clarity in the areas of the cult of the dead, medicine, magic, in the literature, and in the eating habits. Those areas and many others are illustrated in their many facets in the Museum through various exhibitions. Apart from written testimonies of all kinds, from spells on an amulet for protection against illnesses to a lease contract of an olive mill, other objects on display make what is spoken of in the texts visible and comprehensible.
