The Ancient Greeks

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

Session Description

Look closely at the objects in the galleries to discover more about ancient Greek beliefs, technology and everyday life.

Contact us on 01223 332904 or email to book, or to discuss your needs.

Format of the session

Each museum-led session is scheduled for two hours and is delivered in the first sixty minutes of your booked slot.

We recommend that schools use their second hour for follow-up time from the taught session, with any additional time spent with the related 'Into Action' resource.

For a self-led session, we recommend you spend up to one hour delivering your do-it-yourself session, with any additional time spent with the related 'Into Action' resource.

You can also book a studio workshop related to this theme.
