The “Interactive path in the panorama of Ancient Greek Technology” reveals the most representative inventions of the ancient Greeks through a live journey into the world of technological inventions, physics, mathematics, history and engineering.
The permanent collection of the Museum presents experientially a series of emblematic inventions, starting from the first robot in history – the maid of Philon to the cinema of Heron and from the automatic clock of Ktesibios to the first analog computer of Antikythera, covering the period from 2000 B.C. until the end of the ancient Greek world.
Fully functional exhibits from 24 different topics, such as robotics, computers, air propulsion, steam movement, automatic navigation, religious technology and everyday life, bring to life the work of great inventors such as Archimedes, Ktesibios, Pythagoras, Heron and Philon.
Students and educators will have the opportunity to explore the cutting-edge technology of the past, discover the secrets of the beginnings of today’s technology and connect antiquity and modern reality through the program’s discovery experience.
