Full description
Explore the Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology and discover the amazing technological inventions made in Ancient Greece. Learn about different mechanisms through informative and interactive exhibition displays. Discover how similar the technology of the ancient Greeks was to our early modern technology.

The Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology is located in a unique historic Art Nouveau building, with a total area of 700 square meters, where you get to know a relatively unknown aspect of ancient Greek culture through the exhibition "The Hi-Tech Inventions of Ancient Greeks". This includes about 100 selected exhibits from the robot-servant and the "cinema" of Philon to the automotive-puppet show of Heron, and from the hydraulic clock of Ktesibios to the Antikythera calculating mechanism.

The exhibits are accompanied by rich audio-visual material (in Greek and English), such as explanatory labels and giant posters with a lot of information, detailed diagrams, photos, and complete bibliographical references, while many of the exhibits are interactive. There are projecting stations with video and animation as well as documentaries in which the exhibitor explains the function and the use of the mechanisms.
