This Museum educator-led program explores the defining characteristics and legacies of the Ancient Greeks, focusing on sport, politics, drama, music and warfare.


Students visit the exhibition Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes from the British Museum.

Students use inquiry-based learning and narrative to investigate daily life in Ancient Greece. Through the theme of competition, students will consider the legacies of Ancient Greece in today’s world.

This free education program has been made possible with the generous support of the Hellenic Club of Canberra and donors to the National Museum's Ancient Greeks Ambassadors Program.
