Explore the ancient classical civilisations. There are over 450 casts that cover the ancient world of Greece and Rome. These include a painted Peplos Kore. She is a type of statue, a model of a young woman to mark graves as an offering to the Gods.
We think of statues as white. However the Greeks liked to paint theirs in bright colours and adorn them with jewellery. See the statues that would have at the Temple of Zeus in Olympia, the Farnese Hercules and more. Ask for alternative access if you have a buggy at the reception. They ask that kids are kept from touching the casts.
There are kids activities such an art material, trail boxes and even foam blocks to build a temple.
