Alexander the Great: 2000 years of treasures

It features the largest collection of treasures ever to come to Australia from the world famous State Hermitage in St Petersburg, Russia. This exhibition will be exclusive to Sydney.
The exhibition includes over 400 objects from classical antiquity through to the modern age from both Western and non-Western origins, spanning a period of almost 2500 years. Signature pieces that people travel from all over the world to the State Hermitage to see, including the famous Gonzaga cameo and the polished black basalt statue of Cleopatra VII, will be on display!
