Coming soon: two new exhibitions

From 22 June 2022 we will present two new exhibitions: The papyrus roll of Qenna focuses on Qenna’s three-thousand-year-old Egyptian book of the dead. The seventeen meters long papyrus roll is the longest in the collection. Books that made History is an exhibition about 25 books that have had a major influence on the city of Leiden, the university and far beyond. Both exhibitions can be seen until 4 September 2022.
