Combination tickets for families and for the two buildings of Museum Herakleidon
4 April 2016-31 December 2016

The Museum Herakleidon, conscious of its social responsibility, is establishing two new combination tickets with emphasis on families, which will be available exclusively at the museum annex (Ap. Pavlou 37, Thissio) at the time of visit to any of its temporary exhibitions and will also include a free visit (valid any time) to the permanent interactive exhibition “I Play and Understand” at the main building (Herakleidon 16, Thissio).

The two new combination tickets are as follows:

1. 7 euros combination ticket for one parent with his or her children (up to 12 yrs.) or one adult
2. 12 euros combination ticket for two parents with their children (up to 12 yrs.) or two adults

The exhibition “The Incredible Inventions of the Ancient Greeks” will continue during the month of April and until May 8, 2016. It presents functional models of some of the most extraordinary ancient Greek inventions, from the “robot-servant” of Philo and the “hydraulic telegraph” of Aeneas to the “cinema” of Hero, and from the automatic clock of Ctesibius and the astrolabe of Ptolemy to the “analog computer” of Antikythera –a selection of the exhibits of the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology Kostas Kotsanas–, aiming to demonstrate that the technology of the ancient Greeks, just before the end of the ancient Greek world, was shockingly similar to the beginning of our modern technology.

The Museum Herakleidon has been bringing art, education, and culture to the general public since 2004. The inspiration for this endeavor comes from the founders Paul and Anna-Belinda Firos. Today the Museum Herakleidon has evolved into an interactive center for popularized science. Based on its philosophy of “Science, Art, and Mathematics”, it provides original educational programs for students, teachers and adults at its main building (Herakleidon 16, Thissio-Athens), as well as exhibitions of art and popularized science at its annex (Ap. Pavlou 37, Thissio-Athens).
