It is always fun when you can head to a museum and learn more about a culture you knew little about before. The Musée du Quai Branly is set to do just that with its exhibition “the Olmecs and the Cultures of the Gulf of Mexico. The Olmec culture remained lost to the rest of the world for centuries until discoveries in the mid 20th century. Yet, it was an important part of both the Mesoamerican era and that region of the Gulf of Mexico.
This new exhibition gives the visitor the chance to explore the culture and traditions of the region through different artefacts and items. Anyone with an interest in ancient history, especially other American cultures like the Aztecs, will enjoy the chance to learn more and see how the Olmecs differ. The exhibition opens on the 9th of October and will continue until the 25th of July next year.
