Australian Museums blockbuster exhibition Alexander the Great: 2000 Years of treasures must close its doors on Sunday 28 April after setting attendance records for the museum over summer.
As a final celebration before these treasures are packed for transport back to the State Hermitage in St Petersburg, the Australian Museum announce The Week of Alexander.
Between Monday 22 and Friday 26 April, anyone who has Alex in their first or surname will gain entry at a special price. (proof of identity required)
And as Alexander the Great founded 20 cities that bore his name, the Museum has extended this offer to all residents of Alexandria. (proof of address required)
I urge people to take the opportunity to see these treasures for 28 April as they will not travel to Australia again in our lifetime, says Frank Howarth, Director of the Australian Museum. And I urge all Alexes to come along and discover the legacy of their famous historic namesake.
