CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Two Chicago museums are partnering to bring an exhibit about ancient Greece to the city.

The Field Museum and National Hellenic Museum announced "The Greeks: From Agamemnon to Alexander the Great" will premiere at the Field Museum in November 2015. The exhibit will feature more than 500 pieces and artifacts from nearly two dozen Greek museums.

Those artifacts include pieces from the tomb of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great.

The National Hellenic Museum plans to host related programming at its facility in Chicago's Greektown neighborhood. Field Museum curator William Parkinson says visitors will see the evolution of "Greek culture, politics and economics."

The exhibit will be in Chicago from Nov. 26, 2015, to April 17, 2016.
