Exhibition: Rhodes, A Greek Island and Gateway to the East
The island of Rhodes abounds with archaeological treasures, and has been a trading hub between the Aegan and the East since ancient times.

This is the opportunity for visitors to discover archaeological wonders dating from between the 14th and 6th centuries BC (from the Bronze Age to the Archaic period), such as the Rhodian faience.
“Rhodes, une île grecque aux portes de l’Orient” exhibition, from November 14th 2014 to February 9th 2015.
