Unfortunately this exhibition basically repeats Otto Neugebauer's tendentious opinions on the matter. It's a dated approach and ignored the Egyptian origins of math and geometry.

It would be interesting to see the artefacts, but it would have been more historically representative if they had showed the Egyptian precursors as well side by side with these Mesopotamians ones.

Greek Math and geometry was a development of Egyptian math and geometry as well as Mesopotamian.
