Alexander The Great: 2000 years of treasures celebrates the man, his journey and legacy of one of history’s most enigmatic and important figures through objects and works of art.
Only in Sydney at The Australian Museum from 24 November 2012.
“Massive resources are involved in bringing this exhibition from St Petersburg to Sydney,” says Frank Howarth, Director of the Australian Museum. “The artefacts will come in three shipments, each taking over three days to reach Sydney by air, with much of the road route overseen by police escort. There will be a total of 29 curators and conservators accompanying the exhibition to and from Australia – quite apart from our own team working on the project at the Australian Museum.”
