Please note that the material exhibited changes and so I went expecting to see the Escher exhibit, but it was about Chinese technology developments. I was very surprised by the South facing cart that had an indicator that pointed South without the use of magnets....More

We decided to include this museum on our itinerary because one of the museum's buildings is on the pedestrian street that connects a metro stop and the Acropolis. The building itself (we visited the Apostolou Pavlou location) is a window into what the grand old...More

Small museum detailing the inventions of the Ancient Greeks including jugs that pour either water or wine on demand and the first robot! (Which was also able to pour wine). Doesn't take much time to look round and was only 4euro entry.

The science center is very nice, the approach is interesting, and it is a good example of contextualising science and technology. This is certainly worth a visit and particularly suited for children.
