It is one of our can’t-miss exhibitions for Fall in Paris.

The Institut du Monde Arabe’s exhibition “Osiris, Egypt’s Sunken Mysteries” reveals one of the founding myths of ancient Egypt: the Mysteries of Osiris!

Incredible remains of temples

This unprecedented show throws light on the discoveries by submarine exploration of the IEASM (European Institute for Underwater Archaeology) in Aboukir Bay, undertaken by Franck Goddio, director of the excavation and curator of the exhibition.

Osiris, Egypt’s Sunken Mysteries, by the tourist in paris

It reveals the incredible remains of the temples of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus in which the most secret religious rites and processions took place, as well as highlighting numerous objects bearing witness to a cult that has completely vanished today.

Across this exhibition you can follow the famous nautical procession of Osiris from Thonis-Heracleion to Canopus that accompanied the god each year on his passage to the hereafter.
