EXHIBITION: Samothrace, The Mysteries of the Great Gods

Where: Acropolis Museum
When: Now showing until 10th January 2016

Why Go:

The relationship between the ancient Greeks and their gods was well known and documented. However, it was the mysterious cults that remained elusive at the time, accessible only to those who had been initiated. The most famous mystery surrounded Eleusis and Samothrace.

The Mysteries of the Great Gods takes a closer look at these cults and features archaeological findings from the necropolis or ancient burial site of Samothrace. Explore the mystery at the Acropolis Museum in Athens.
