Rooftop Thursday – Ancient Olympic Games Quiz

/ 01. August 2024
5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Did you know that participants in the ancient Olympic Games competed naked? That the games, in addition to sports, also included poetry, drama, music, and philosophy, and that women were not allowed to participate – not even as spectators! 

Torsdag på taget OL-quiz 

Come and quiz with us on the top of the the Glyptoteket while enjoying the view over the rooftops of Copenhagen. These Thursdays, we’re warming up for the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris with a quiz about the roots of the Olympics in antiquity. 

If you get hungry along the way, you can refuel at the bar where the museum café, Picnic, offers a selection of snacks and refreshing drinks. Gather your dream quiz team – you must be between 2-6 participants on each team, and there are, of course, prizes at stake. 

Buy ticket.
