There's an exposition featuring the Villa of the Papyri here in Madrid.
Here's the website, in English:

It's fantastic to think that slowly but surely this library (or rather, what's left of it) is being recovered.

Hi stephan,

Good article.

Do you know of a place on the internet where we can read the translations of the unraveled scrolls. or is Brigham Young trying to make a few bucks by publishing them?

Warmly,

Jay Raskin
