The Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes exhibition from the British Museum’s world-renowned collection from the Ancient Greek world, is the largest selection of ancient artefacts ever loaned by the British Museum to New Zealand.

It will showcase a wide range of treasures and stories, including the masterpiece of the exhibition, a two metre long fragment of marble frieze from one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Ancient Greek civilisation has had a profound influence on the development of language, politics, educational systems, philosophy, science, and the arts around the world. Artistic, physical and intellectual competition pervaded all of society and this exhibition, highlights that competition can unify, resulting in achievement and innovation. 

This impressive and impactful exhibition is an introduction to an ancient culture that has never before been showcased in Auckland in this way or to this scale.

Don't miss this major international exhibition exclusively at Auckland Museum until Sunday 6 November.
