The launch of an Ancient Greece exhibition at Auckland Museum has been postponed until mid-2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes is a world-renowned collection from the Ancient Greek world, and is the largest selection of ancient artefacts ever loaned by the British Museum to New Zealand.

But challenges in bringing international exhibitions to Aotearoa during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have prompted the rescheduling of Ancient Greeks, which was due to open last month.

Auckland Museum chief executive Dr David Gaimster said the virus has had a major impact on touring exhibitions across the globe and here in Aotearoa.

“We continue to explore other exhibition offerings and their viability and remain committed to the importance of international special exhibitions in bringing the world to Auckland,’ he said.

“We continue to work with international partners on an exciting range of exhibitions for our domestic audiences and look forward to announcing these as soon as they are confirmed.”

The exhibition showcases a wide range of treasures and stories and includes a selection of iconic sculptures from the ‘Mausoleum at Halikarnassos’, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World.

Hi there!
I have one furnished room for rent in my house with a feel of living in a mini-resort.

The room are for short term, but can be discussed further if for a longer period of time and available from 6th September.

The house is situated right between two beaches - a 2 minute walk to Rothesay Bay beach and a 5 minute walk to Browns Bay beach and town with heaps of shops, cafes, restaurants etc.

The room is down the end of the house sharing a lounge, bathroom and toilet with another guy living in this end of the house as well.

The cost per week is $290 for one person +$60 for power, water and internet. An extra person per week is $100.

The house is large and has another living, lounge, dining and kitchen areas to share plus many decks and a great outside area with swimming pool, BBQ and table tennis.

At the moment I have another two nice mature guys staying in the house as well.

The house is big, so there is still heaps of space for privacy.

If you wish to see the rooms, please call or text me to organise a time to visit.

Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
