Share the stories of ancient Greece

The Ancient Greeks Ambassadors Program provides an opportunity to be involved with this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Together, Ancient Greek Ambassadors and the National Museum will share with all Australians the wonder of Greek culture; where civilisation began.

Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes from the British Museum, on display in Canberra from 17 December 2021 to 1 May 2022, highlights the reach and influence of ancient Greece and explores how the civilisation’s quest for excellence still resonates in the modern world.

This captivating exhibition will bring to Australian audiences 178 objects from the Ancient Greek world that date as far back as the 8th century BCE, including sculpture, armour, jewellery and pottery. Many of these masterpieces have not previously been on display or travelled internationally.
