Open Horizons: Ancient Greek Journeys and Connections is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most significant items from Athens' prestigious National Archaeological Museum.
The exhibition, now showing for a limited time at Melbourne Museum, features over 44 ancient works that tell the story of ideas, influences and connections that formed and built communities. Visitors are taken on a journey through ancient Greece to explore how the trade of ideas and goods influenced Greek culture and in turn, the ancient world.
The team from the Hellenic Museum recently visited the exhibition. From the Early Bronze Age to the Roman period, these are a few of the objects that left their mark on us. Look out for these incredible pieces during your visit!
