Ancient Rome: The Empire that Shaped the World


Journey back in time to Ancient Rome with this family-friendly interactive exhibition showcasing incredible art, machines, and technology. 

Bringing to to life one of the most technologically significant times in the history of mankind, the exhibition covers an epic period of history, from the triumphant victory of Julius Caesar over the Gaul in 52 BC, to the transformation of Rome from a Republic into the mighty Roman Empire.

Few pieces of ancient Roman technology have survived over thousands of years. These have now been reconstructed using the same materials and techniques by the Artisans of Florence. 

Highlights of the exhibition include artefacts, models, catapults, frescoes, armour, weapons, busts and much more. 

Re-live history and discover the life, culture, determination and genius that carved the great Roman Empire.

Exhibition admission is included with general museum entry Adults $12.50, Children $6.50 and Family (2 Adults and up to 2 Children) $32. Buy an Annual Pass for unlimited museum entry for 12 months, including temporary exhibitions.
