There’s magic in the air this summer!

The ancient world was filled with mystical secrets, prophesies and curses. Discover these secrets for yourself over a magical afternoon at the Museum of Classical Archaeology. Just drop in and craft spells, create your own curse tablet and even try your hand at ancient fortune-telling.

Will you uncover lost spells from the past or learn the secret to seeing the future? (But be warned, not all prophesies have happy endings…)

 

 

This event is part of Summer at the Museums.
