Olympus: The Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin brings to Winnipeg over 160 ancient treasures from the celebrated collection of the National Museums in Berlin. Bringing to life two ancient civilizations, these statues, vases, and jewellery pieces span almost 10 centuries of artistic production. Come face to face with stunning representations of the Olympian gods: Zeus, Venus, Athena, and more. As one of only two stops in North America, Olympus is Manitoba's first major exhibition of classical antiquities in over half a century.
