Excellent idea, educative, didactic... Needs improvement on the audiovisual. Some of the initial explanation was made in a small TV and the noise from a projection in another room didn't let to understand some parts.

If you are intrigued by the inventions of the ancient Greeks, like Archimedes and the Katakolon Device, this is fascinating. If not, it is one room full of mostly small models and you will be out quickly. We enjoyed the science of it, the attendant...More

Amazing little museum full of fascinating models and information. We even had a demonstration of some working examples. Big shout out to Maria who could not have been more friendly or informative in excellent English. A wonderful way to spend an hour or two.

Yes. There are 2 museums - Ancient Greek Musical Instruments 5 mins walk and the Ancient Greek Technology around 10 mins walk. We only visited the latter. I wouldn't like to do the 2 on the same day! The choice is yours.
