Venue: Melbourne Museum

A remarkable exhibition of priceless ancient artefacts from the National Museum, Kabul, is on show at Melbourne Museum from 22 March to 28 July 2013. On view for the first time in Australia, Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul features more than 230 precious objects from archaeological sites along the ancient Silk Road. For decades these treasures were thought to have been lost or destroyed during years of conflict in Afghanistan, but in 2003 were unexpectedly recovered from vaults where they had been hidden for safekeeping by museum staff. Join staff from the Education and Community Programs team at Melbourne Museum to hear about the exhibition, and associated programming, including the web site, education resources, adult programs, family programs and community engagement.

This event is a partnership between ENVI and Museums Australia (Victoria).

The evening includes entry to the exhibition, and a glass of wine prior to exhibition entry.
