Great experience for the whole family! Our tour inside the museum was information rich and not boring for the kids at all. After our tour we headed to the outside space where we plant our own seeds and played games that were also played in Ancient Greece. The cute museum corner with actual copies of toys that kids in antiquity used to play, gave us the opportunity to get in touch with the ancient Greek culture. Sack races and a funny game with rope came next and we played all together. We enjoyed our olive oil experience in picnic tables by eating a fresh salad of cucumber and tomato and of course we tried some bread and olives. Some crafting for the closure and a photograph with polaroid camera which we took as a gift to remember our experience. Thank you for everything
