'The Olmecs and the Civilisations of the Gulf of Mexico' at the Musée du Quai Branly
Until 25 July 2021
The Quai Branly Museum is taking visitors on a journey through space and time with its exhibition dedicated to Olmec culture. Discover one of the greatest Mesoamerican civilisations (1600 BC to 100 AD), whose name comes from the word Olmán, meaning 'land of rubber'. Over 200 pieces retrace three millennia of traditions, rites and exchanges specific to this little-known world.
