Arriving in mid-2022, 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 and includes a selection of iconic sculptures from the ‘Mausoleum at Halikarnassos’, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World.

Share the experience by adding a Friends & Whānau pass when you sign up, so you can always bring someone along to the exhibition with you.
