Look for immersive experiences, including a diorama of Marathon of the Sands with race gear and trophies, plus a photo op of the Rally of the Gazelles, which is an off-road, all-woman desert rally.

The exhibit also shows how the Berbers mastered living in the Sahara’s formidable environment.

After a visit to the exhibit, stop by Tangierine Café to try Sellou, a snack mentioned in the exhibit which is commonly eaten during the races to give participants the energy needed to complete the journey.
