FLAME OF OLYMPIA
An Exhibition of Olympic Torches
The ancient Olympics united the Greek world and the modern Games have, for over 120 years, brought together over 200 nations as they compete under the banner of friendship. Greece, as the birthplace of the Olympics remains an important part of the tradition. Flame of Olympia showcases torches from the Summer Olympics between 1936, when the torch relay was first introduced, to the 2016 Rio Games. The exhibition explores the ancient history of the Games and their modern revival through a collection of torches, VR, and an audio experience.
