  • Explore ancient technology and marvel at how shockingly similar it seems to our modern technology

Description

Explore the Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology on an experiential 1-hour private guided tour run by qualified staff who is either experienced engineers, archaeologists, historians, or museologists.  Learn about different mechanisms through informative and interactive exhibition displays. Discover how similar the technology of the ancient Greeks was to our early modern technology. Discover the Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology that is located in a unique historic Art Nouveau building, with a total area of 700 square meters. Get to know a relatively unknown aspect of ancient Greek culture through the exhibition 'The Hi-Tech Inventions of Ancient Greeks' which includes about 100 selected exhibits from the robot-servant and the 'cinema' of Philon to the automotive-puppet show of Heron, and from the hydraulic clock of Ktesibios to the Antikythera calculating mechanism. Enjoy also the rich audio-visual material (in Greek and English), such as explanatory labels and giant posters with a lot of information, detailed diagrams, photos, and complete bibliographical references, while many of the exhibits are interactive.  See the projecting stations with video and animation as well as documentaries in which the exhibitor explains the function and the use of the mechanisms.
