  • The exhibits are contemporary constructions of inventions and creations of ancient Greek scientists, mainly of Archimedes (obviously). Admission was free, the work that has been done with regard to the exhibits and the explanation that accompanies each one of them is very detailed. It's worth devoting little time there for anyone visiting the area.

  • Small free exhibition, which will show a variety of inventions of Archimedes. Very interesting and with a series of games where you can develop your mind. The girls who abide there very attentive and sympathetic.
