This new touring exhibition showcases the contribution and influence that Ancient Greece has had on the development on science, technology and the arts.

Produced by Noesis, the Thessaloniki Science Centre and Technology Museum, the exhibition features interactives, scale models and 3D animations. It is formed into seven thematic areas, covering:

  • Astronomy
  • Exploration and communication
  • Body and mind

Accompanying the themed areas is an interactive timeline which places the technological achievements in chronological order, and a luminous wall throughout the exhibition which provides the synopsis of philosophical questions that constituted the cradle of the Greek knowledge and gave birth to numerous accomplishments in arts, science and technology.
