*2FOR1 admission Weekdays £20, Weekend £22*


Tread the line between myth and reality in our epic exhibition, Troy. The ancient city of Troy holds an enduring place in our imagination. The Trojan War is central to Greek myth and inspired Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, as well as works by Virgil and Shakespeare – and still inspires artists and writers today.

From the judgment of Paris and the Trojan horse to the death of Achilles and the tragic love story of Troilus and Cressida, this exhibition will tell Troy’s legendary stories, with a diverse range of objects including archaeological discoveries that suggest that there may be a real Troy behind the myth.
