Back by popular demand, the festivities at the Agora continue — bringing the sights, smells, tastes and sounds of Greece to the Museum. Much more than a market, the Agora was the centre of athletic, social, spiritual and political life in Ancient Greece. Taste delicious food, browse market stalls, or sit back and take in music and dance, including a performance from the Australian Hellenic Choir. Even The Evzones Collection photographic exhibition will have a mini stall.
