  • This museum has been my absolute favorite so far. It's absolutely fascinating to see the technology people were dreaming up so long ago. The staff was absolutely FANTASTIC. So knowledgeable. Perfect English. Excellent demonstrations that I never wanted to end. It's a small space but we spent almost two hours in there reading and marveling at the ancient designs brought to life. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip....and this was literally just a little place we found on google. If your science or history minded, you've gotta check this place out.
  • This place is amazing! Seeing the descriptions, videos and actually working models of different Greek inventions really brought them to life, and even more so with the explanation of the people in the museum. A must for anyone with a slice of curiosity, and even more so for anyone interested in engineering and technology:).
