Featuring the largest collection of treasures to ever come to Australia from the world famous State Hermitage in St Petersburg, Russia, the exhibition “Alexander the Great: 2000 years of treasure” will be exclusive to Sydney.
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, will be hosted in the Australian Museum.
