The Trail of Alexander the Great
Weave art and culinary history while tracing the trail of Alexander the Great. Explore the journey of a man who inspired his soldiers to march beyond the known ends of the earth while exploring the museum's collection of objects from the lands traveled. Then, head to a professional midtown kitchen to bring the gallery tour to life by preparing a contemporary meal inspired by ancient diaries combining Greek, Persian, Indian and Egyptian foods.
