I was doing pre-trip nternet research and I found this musuem. I was thrilled to find a crash course on Greek history easy enough to be understood by children.
Upon arrivng in Athens I visited this musuem. It is best to get here by bus from centercity as its a long walk from teh metro station but the bus stops directly in front of the entrance.
I bought a 16 Euro ticket which enabled me to see everything. I first saw a 45 minute 3D show on the ancient Agora with a group of schoolchildren. The show was phenomenon with its effects. Then I saw the exhibition on Greek Mathematics. Afterwards I saw a 10 minute 3D show on the ancient Olympics. Finally I went to the exhibit of the ancient Agora (which as been restored with the help of the Rockefeller Foundation).
Not just this but I had joined the show when the Greek version was being aired so the lady in the staff went out of her way and translated teh commentary for me by providing me with ear-phones. It enabled me to make sense of the show. She later took me to the mathematics exhibition herself. She was very helpful and I appreciate the fact that she went out of her way for me.
The gift shop has some great books for children which were selling at 50% off.
This museum is a must-see for anyone wishing to learn about ancient greek history the easy way. The building is beautiful and technological tools are state of the art. I didnt see anything like this even at Disney when I went there in 2003.
