Cleopatra - The Search for the last Queen of Egypt

Finds from the expeditions of Franck Goddio and his team off the coast of Egypt were on display in the exhibition “Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt”. Organized by National Geographic and Arts and Exhibitions International, with cooperation from the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM), it featured about 150 artifacts and took visitors inside the present-day search for Cleopatra, which extends from the sands of Egypt to the depths of the Bay of Aboukir near Alexandria.
