The Gallery of Arts and History in the Morocco pavilion at Epcot, Walt Disney World just introduced an all-new exhibit, “Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition.” This exhibit immerses guests in today’s most intense competitions in the Sahara Desert and explores the centuries-old traditions of its ancient inhabitants.
A leather and wood Tuareg camel saddle on loan from the Museum of Anthropology is featured in the Culture of the Desert section of the exhibit. In this area, guests will explore the history of the original inhabitants of the Sahara, the Berbers, and learn how they mastered the challenges of living in this formidable environment.
“Race Against the Sun” is the second current Epcot exhibition to feature MOA artifacts. Several objects from the MOA’s Day of the Dead collection are on display in the Epcot Mexico pavilion exhibit, “Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos.”
