COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina State Museum is introducing Julius Caesar to the Palmetto State.

Julius Caesar: Roman Military Might and Machines is the latest addition to the museum and will open its doors Saturday, September 26th.

The exhibit features machines, pottery wheels, arches, cranes, and hands-on technologies used during the Roman Empire.

History Curator JoAnn Zeise says the exhibit showcases the engineering and military might of the Roman Empire at its height.

“It really looks at how these machines work and how the Romans used it to control this vast Empire of millions of people,” Zeise said.

The State Museum will not participate in “free museum weekend” this weekend, but they have $1 admission on the first Sunday of every month.

Julius Caesar: Roman Military Might and Machines will run until May of 2016, and admission is $13.95 for general public adults, $11.95 for children, and $5 for museum members.
