Join in the free family fun with AGWA and Awesome Festival for the opening weekend of Treasure Ships.

Kids can get creative in our map-making and painting with spices art workshops. On Saturday, be entertained by Glenn B. Swift, Storyteller Extraordinaire. And on Sunday, experience the magic of an Indonesian Wayang Kulit (shadow puppet) performance and hands-on workshop.

Treasure Ships features the spectacular and exotic art produced for global markets in the age of spices. The exhibition, displaying art dating from the sixteenth to early nineteenth centuries, uses extraordinary works of art to tell the story of spice markets and shipwrecks.
