Exhibition | Living and dying in Egypt. From Alexander the Great to Cleopatra


Beyond the two great figures of history, Alexander the Great and Cleopatra, Egypt continues to fascinate us. This new exhibition takes us back in time, from 323 to 30 J.-C. During these three centuries, the Ptolemies, Greek sovereigns on Egyptian soil, contributed to Egypt's influence throughout the Mediterranean basin. Egyptian and Greek cultures intermingled in the fields of art, religious practices and ways of dealing with death.   

Discover these civilisations through exceptional original works, monuments and ancient papyri that bear witness to daily life and exchanges between the two cultures. The exhibition is designed to be immersive and fun, with tactile reproductions, video and sound extracts, and interactive games. There is also specially adapted content for younger visitors.
