The exhibition The most important inventions of the Ancient Greeks revives 50 great inventions of the little-known ancient technological marvels (the ‘robot-maid’ by Philon, the ‘cinema’ by Heron, the hydraulic clock by Archimedes and the Antikythera ‘analogue computer’) which relate to the period from 2000 B.C. until the end of the ancient Greek world.
This is a unique exhibition by Kostas Kotsanas, who has devoted his life to the study of ancient Greek culture, particularly in the field of ancient Greek technology.
The exhibition Gods and Heroes of Greek Mythology is structured around parts which complement each other and give an overview of Greek mythology as part of the ancient Greek civilisation.
The exhibition includes more than 300 separate projects focusing on the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic period (6th -1st century B.C.). Visitors can see oversized three-dimensional handmade replicas of 2.5 to 3.5 metres high of the Gods and heroes of Greek mythology, replicas of objects of every day use to the Olympian gods and heroes, according to ancient texts, paintings depicting the characters of Greek mythology created by well-known Greek painters and many more.
Both exhibitions are meant for adults, school children and students of all levels (kindergarten, elementary school, Junior & Senior High School).
