The Romans are at the National Museum of Australia!

You're invited to a special viewing of the Rome: city+empire exhibition, the latest international blockbuster at the National Museum of Australia.

The exhibition features more than 250 objects from the British Museum collections, most have been especially prepared for this exhibition and haven’t been displayed before. From colossal statue fragments to precious jewellery and a preserved child’s sandal, the exhibition features objects of luxury and the everyday. Objects owned by patricians, plebeians and slaves.

This is the third exhibition developed from the partnership between the National Museum of Australia and the British Museum.

Members of the exhibition team will give you a behind the scenes glimpse of how the exhibition has been enhanced with experiential audio tours and interactives. There are also tips on how to keep visitors happy in a queue.

This event is supported by the National Museum of Australia and the sparkling wine has been generously supplied by De Bortoli.
