More information to help you plan your visit


Please note that some objects, including our statuette of Nike, are currently at Belsay Hall for the exhibition Reimagining Ancient Greece

Find out what it was like to be an Ancient Greek and how this great civilisation was shaped by the mountainous terrain that helped to create many different city states.

You can listen to stories of Greek myths, and a huge frieze portrays images taken from the actual objects which are displayed down the centre of the gallery.
