Death on the Nile

Death in all its facets: from the treatment of the dead to the funerary customs, a deep look at the Egyptian Hereafter.    

Pot Luck: Vessels of the Far East

The galleries devoted to Asia welcome a new display. Around sixty terracotta, stoneware, bronze and lacquered pots dating from the 11th century B.C. to the 20th century A.D. illustrate the variety of shapes and uses of pots in China and the surrounding countries.

A series of workshops for children aged 5 to 8 accompanies the exhibition from March to May 2015.
