Ancient Rome: The Empire that Shaped the World

Touring Exhibition

Museum of Geraldton

See the wonders of ancient Rome brought to life!

Ancient Rome: The Empire that Shaped the World is a family-friendly, interactive exhibition of incredible machines, art and technology.

Due to the ravages of time, very few pieces of ancient Roman technology and machinery have survived in their entirety.

By studying archaeological finds and old texts, the internationally acclaimed Artisans of Florence have reconstructed ancient Roman technology using the same materials and techniques that were used thousands of years ago.

The entire family will be able to get hands-on with these creations to learn about the fascinating history of ancient Rome, the lives of fearsome gladiators, and the innovation that set the Roman Empire apart from the rest of the world.

This exhibition includes artefacts, models, catapults, frescoes, armour, weapons, busts, and much more.
