The Mount Clare Temple is an amazing example of a neo-classical temple, complete with painted frescos of honeysuckle, musical instruments and incense burners and an early plaster version of the Elgin Marbles. Moved to its current location in 1913, the temple has been locked to the public for decades, but is now beginning restoration. Young people are invited to visit and learn more about the classical world and why for so many centuries people have been fascinated by the art and architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.
