Ancient Rome: Epic Innovators and Engineers

Travel back in time and discover the determination, machines and genius that carved the great Roman Empire at the WA Maritime Museum.

 

Ancient Rome: Epic innovators and engineers is an exhibition that transports visitors back more than 2,000 years to one of the most technologically significant times in the history of the western world.

The exhibition showcases the military genius of the Roman Army, the inspiring technology used to construct Rome, and the innovations that helped develop and maintain the Roman Empire for centuries.

Through meticulously reconstructed technology and machinery, Ancient Rome begins with the victory by Julius Caesar and his army over the Gauls in 52BC. It then charts the transformation of the Roman Republic (509BC – 27BC) into the immense Roman Empire (27BC – AD476).
