Academic Tours 

Curator-led tours of the museum and hands-on object-based learning workshops are available for professional tour groups, and other professional and academic organisations.

The ANU Classics Museum contains over 600 objects from the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. Visitors gain a taste of everyday life in the ancient world through some of its fascinating objects and their stories, from surgical instruments and baby feeders to coins of Cleopatra and Nero.The museum features examples of ancient material culture spanning over 5000 years of history from Roman Britain, the Near- and Mid-East, Northern Africa, and Europe.

The ANU Classics Museum also boasts a brand new Object-Based Learning Room (adjacent to the museum), housing the Professor Graeme Clarke Teaching Collection. The hands-on collection stems from archaeological excavations undertaken at the Hellenistic site of Jebel Khalid in Syria. Workshops provide guests with the opportunity to handle ancient objects including ceramics, glass, metals and sculptural fragments representing the everyday domestic and cultural life of the residents of an ancient town on the banks of the Euphrates.
