Ancient Greeks in Australia’s Capital
Join archaeologist Iain Shearer to uncover the Greek treasures of Australia’s capital city, including the much-anticipated summer blockbuster exhibition at the National Museum of Australia.
Take a private tour of the major exhibition, Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes, at the National Museum of Australia, showcasing more than 170 iconic objects from the British Museum.
Discover the superb collection of artefacts and objects in the Australian National University’s Classics Museum, hear about Australian engagement in Greece at the Australian War Memorial, and enjoy a private visit to the Embassy of Greece in Yarralumla.
The weekend is rounded out by meals at the fine restaurants for which Canberra is increasingly known, and by the talks and expertise of your tour leader, archaeologist Iain Shearer.
This tour is part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW in partnership with Renaissance Tours.
