During that day 10 gallery talks for adults about The other gods of the Acropolis and 8 workshops for children aged 8-12 years about Myths in images will be held.
The gallery talks focus on the gods and heroes that were worshipped on the Acropolis of goddess Athena; cult sites of Poseidon, Artemis, Zeus, Asclepios, Dionysos, Aphrodite and other gods found their place around the temples of the goddess, but also on the slopes of the Sacred Rock. Today, visitors can admire the impressive material testimonies of their worship in the Museum galleries.
The workshops Myths in images: Hercules and Hydra and Myths in images: Centaurs and Lapiths invite children to set up their mobile workshops in front of the ancient heroes and monsters and to rebuild the well-known ancient myths.
The gallery talks (in Greek, English and French) as well as the workshops (in Greek) will be held by Museum Archaeologist-Hosts. On this day the Museum will remain open from 08:00 to 20:00 with free entry for all visitors.
