The excitement has hit fever-pitch in Canberra ahead of the official opening of the ‘Ancient Greeks’ exhibition at the National Museum of Australia on December 17.
The Hellenic Club of Canberra, which is the official Community Partner of the exhibition, has even dressed up its building in colourful banners to promote ‘Ancient Greeks.’
Speaking with The Greek Herald, the President of the Greek Orthodox Community and Church of Canberra, John Loukadellis, says he’s really excited for people to visit the Museum and witness this ‘once in a lifetime opportunity.’
“We’ve hand-picked 178 pieces, 16 of which have been in the southern hemisphere before while the remaining pieces haven’t been outside of Greece or the British Museum,” Mr Loukadellis says.
“We welcome everyone with open arms to visit the ACT to see the exhibition and for all your dining needs, pay a visit to the Hellenic Club.”
‘Ancient Greeks’ will be running until May 1, 2022 and we can’t wait. You can buy your tickets here: bit.ly/3lCYHHk.
