Get in the mood for the upcoming Aztecs exhibition at the Australian Museum! Come with us on a day tour to see the Gold and the Incas: lost worlds of Peru exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
Revealing the splendour, drama and beauty of Ancient Peru and the famous empire of the Incas, this remarkable exhibition features more than 220 works of art including spectacular gold pieces and scintillating jewellery created thousands of years ago to decorate the nobility in life and in death.
Ten private and public museums from Peru, including the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History, have generously lent some of their greatest treasures for this spectacular exhibition.
Our luxury coach departs the Australian Museum at 7 am, returning at around 7 pm. In between, the day includes morning tea en route at Berrima, a picnic lunch on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin with sandwiches, slices, wine and fruit juice, transport and admission to the exhibition.
Join like-minded Members on this great day out.
