Same-sex desire does not need modern labels and categories in order to exist across time.

From goddesses and ancient myths to powerful emperors explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture in amongst the statues and sculptures of the atmospheric Cast Gallery at the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

Volunteer guides share their personal selection of fascinating stories which challenge binary approaches to gender and sexual identity through a range of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-related objects related to Ancient Greece and Rome.

Tours will start promptly, last approximately 45 mins and be led by a volunteer guide. Please aim to arrive at the meeting point which will be printed on your ticket, and listed in your booking confirmation email 5-10 mins before the advertised start time.

Please note that tours will involve walking around the Museum for the duration. Meeting points for tours will be provided upon booking.

Please note tours are aimed at adults.

The Museum and the tours are wheelchair accessible. Volunteer guides are happy to adjust the tours to meet the needs of the group on the day.
