gladiators, heroes of the colosseum

FROM 1 OCTOBER 2016 TO 5 MARCH 2017 IN HET VALKHOF

What was life like as a gladiator? Knowing that every day could be your last, but also being idolized by 50,000 people?

Museum Het Valkhof transports you back to ancient Rome. To the Colosseum with its public executions, and the fear and the euphoria of the gladiators. A barbaric world? Not for the Romans. The bloody gladiatorial fights were a symbol of the military successes that made the Roman Empire great. The gladiators were true heroes!

The exhibition takes you to the Colosseum in Rome – ranging from the stands over the catacombs to the arena itself. Interactive displays, short films, drawings, models, gladiator figures and animals all go to create a lifelike experience. And it’s presented in an intriguing decor that perfectly complements the centuries-old items. Authentic weapons, spectacular helmets and leg protectors, gravestones, small idols, murals, musical instruments. Each and every one an absolute top exhibit!

Come to Museum Het Valkhof and discover the world of the gladiators!
