Ancient Olympics: Let the Games Begin!

In this action-packed workshop, students come face to face with the Hellenic Museum’s collection of rare 20th century Olympic torches. Exploring artefacts, students will learn about the values, story and symbols of the ancient and modern Olympics, and then test their strength by competing in a re-imagined ancient Pentathlon contest.
