About ANU Classics Museum Catalogue

THE ANU CLASSICS MUSEUM IS CLOSED FOR HAIL REMEDIATION WORKS ON THE AD HOPE BUILDING UNTIL JUNE 2024 (DATE TBC). The collections have been transferred to secure storage. Alternative offerings for schools and community groups with the hands-on teaching collection are available during the closure, please contact for details.

The Classics Museum, on the campus of the Australian National University in Canberra, houses a representative collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, ranging across time from about 1500 BC to AD 500.
