Ancient Rome Comes to Life at the Fernbank Museum

Don’t miss the one of a kind museum experience now on display at the Fernbank Museum! You’re invited to discover the story behind one of Rome’s most brutal and celebrated traditions in this stunning new special exhibit, “Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum.”

Building on the larger-than-life legends of Roman gladiators, the exhibit explores the world these men inhabited, from the regiment of training, discipline, and constant peril to the fame, wealth, and freedom that greeted the very best gladiators.

This in-depth experience lets you follow along and experience the lives of the gladiators themselves, and step inside the colossal, complex stage where their fate was determined—the Colosseum. The fascinating and educational stories are told through original artifacts, modern replicas, interactive technology, and immersive environments. This special exhibit marks the Fernbank Museum’s 25th anniversary, so come celebrate this milestone and take the plunge into the very heart of ancient Rome!
