Museum of Greek and Roman Mythology

CLAS 430 Summer 2021

The Museum of Greek and Roman Mythology is a digital instantiation of a museum in the original sense of a place for the Muses and the arts they inspire. Additionally, it is a museum in the sense exemplified by the Museum of Alexandria: a place for scholars to engage in research.

This museum consists of both a collection of media related to Greek and Roman myth and a collection of scholarship on these mythological media produced by the students of Classics 430.

Visitors to the museum are encouraged to take a tour through the places and spaces of Greco-Roman myth and explore their divine and mortal inhabitants through the collections of texts and resources.
