  • I visited the museum a few weeks ago with two friends. The interactive machines make it a very exciting experience and they reveal a different aspect of ancient Greece. The staff was very friendly...  more »

  • A secret beauty!! Incredibly interesting exhibition, very interactive for adults and kids. The ladies responsible are very knowledgeable and even though it is small I have spent 2.5 hours and I could have easily spent another 2.5 hours. It is an absolute gem, and the books I've bought are beautifully crafted in double translations. They also have places for kids and adults to sit and play ancient games if they wish. Do not miss it!!
  • Super cool place especially for geeks ;-) It is quite small but we spent almost 2 hours there playing around the exhibits. Most of them are well explained in English, and they are happy to guide you through and answer any questions. The second floor has musical instruments, nice but much less exciting
  • It was one of the most lovely experiences I had in a museum. If you are not a technical person, there are plenty of images and videos explaining how the inventions were supposed to work. And the ticket price was really affordable. Unfortunately, I reserved just an hour for the museum and I could use at least one more to enjoy the entire museum properly. I totally recommend it!
  • This Museum is small but wonderful. It shows pretty nicely the ingenuity of the ancient Greek people. Many inventions are rebuild and you are invited to discover its work by hands on! Touch it and see for yourself. The personal was very friendly and explained a lot. This museum is not only nice but a must see! Don't miss out on it.
  • For families with children I would highly recommend this museum since there are many exhibits you can touch and play around with. For anyone else I would rather visit the archeological museum which also covers ancient Greek mechanisms and does so in a much more thorough way. This museum is highly superficial and unscientific. Everything is the first and best and most important. As an example it directly states that there would be no autonomous cars today without the ancient Greeks. Which is a bit out there when it comes to statements...
