Friends of the Museum

Established in 1974 by professors Michael Swan and Nicholas Gyenes, the Museum of Antiquities seeks to provide a reliable account of the history of ancient Near Eastern, Greek, Roman and medieval art. Our collection, a mix of full-scale replicas and original pieces, is one of the best of its kind in Canada.

The Museum relies on donor and friend support to acquire new pieces and increase programming, which includes the volunteer program, high school work experience program, children's camps, and the Ides of March, all of which help foster a love of history, art and archaeology throughout Western Canada.
