Virtual tour of Kotsanas Museum's permanent collection: Ancient Greece, the origins of Technology! (if ticket option selected)
  • Discover the profound influence that ancient Greek technology had on Western culture, and explore a unique museum with over 142 working models based on inventions and concepts from Greek antiquity
  • Meet the 'robot' servant of Philon, the cinema of Heron, the automatic clock of Ktesibios, the analog computer of Antikythera, and more
  • Get immersed as you go with interactive exhibits and audio-visual material (in Greek and English), explanatory labels, giant posters, diagrams, animation, and photos

The ancient Greeks contributed greatly to the fields of philosophy, fine arts, and science, but the technology they used is still relatively unknown. Be amazed by 142 working replicas of ancient Greek inventions, and explore a unique museum of antique robots, alarm clocks, lifting mechanisms and loads more!

Did you know the ancient Greeks invented a 'cinema' with moving pictures and sound? Or that they dreamed up automobiles and steam-engines? Or that they used robots to serve them? Yes, robots!

Come and join the curious crowds intrigued by the concept of cutting-edge technology from ancient Greece, and explore a fascinating interactive museum of antique technologies in Athens.

Discover how they calculated and worked with sophisticated data, eye up some ancient vending machines, and admire lifting mechanisms capable of building tall structures with hardly any manpower.

It's enough to change the world as you know it!

Insider tip

Museum founder Kostas Kotsanas spent 22 years of painstaking research to bring this collection to life. All replicas were made by him... which is probably more impressive than the museum itself!
