Get up close with Medieval artefacts at this exclusive Queensland Museum event





Brisbane is coming alive this spring and summer with fantastic arts and cultural events you don’t want to miss, so if you fancy yourself a bit of a history buff, get to Brisbane’s Queensland Museum at least once from December until April of next year. That’s because Medieval Power: Symbols & Splendour is storming the place in an exclusive exhibition.

Queensland Museum is the first museum in the world – and the only one in Australia and New Zealand – to host this new exhibition curated by the British Museum.

Suzanne Miller, Queensland Museum CEO, says the exhibition will span the years AD 400 to 1500, and feature all sorts of goodies to ignite the imagination: knights’ helmets, swords and other tools of war, religious relics, precious jewellery, and sculptures.

‘These artefacts tell the stories of a vibrant and fascinating period of history when many of the countries and cultures of modern Europe were formed’, says Professor Miller.

‘Exhibition visitors can experience all aspects of this period, from the splendour of the Royal Court through to everyday life. It will truly open a window to the Middle Ages’.

If you can’t get enough of Medieval history (and the awesome films that explore the era), get yourself to the Queensland Museum when this exhibition runs, from December 11 through April 10, 2016.
