From China to Nantes, or from Nantes to China, this exhibition whisks visitors away to a world rich in colour and fragrance
Le Voyage is making a stopover in Myanmar, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Egypt, among others... Just so many countries with abundant natural resources: silk, tea, spices, sapphires, diamonds or rubies. These trading goods and coveted objects have been at the very origin of commercial and cultural trade between the East and West for the past 3 000 years.
These mineralogical, botanical, or historical treasures were wither taken from the Muséum’s collections or elsewhere, and are an immediate source of curiosity and wonderment!
UNTIL 24 FEBRUARY 2020.
