Gladiators After Dark

Queensland Museum

Gladiators After Dark gives adults a unique chance to view Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum by night at the Queensland Museum, with glass of wine in hand, fascinating talks, live entertainment and no children.

The Australian exclusive international touring exhibition features more than 110 artefacts, interactive games and displays to reveal who gladiators were, where they lived and how they trained. Amongst the archaeological treasures are actual pieces of the Colosseum, elaborately decorated bronze gladiator helmets and original arms and armour preserved in the ashes of Pompeii.
