A new unit will enrich the exhibition VOYAGE – Greek Shipbuilding and Seafaring from antiquity to modern times. It will focus on the century of research during which scientists have tried to understand the Antikythera Mechanism.
From 8-9 April Poseidonion Square will be filled with a spectacular collection of antique vehicles on an island which is normally car free, creating a stunning contrast between the historic hotel in the background and the island’s unique natural beauty in springtime.
The goal of the exhibition is to present to the visitors, in a coherent and comprehensible manner, the history of Greek seafaring and shipbuilding, giving them a chance to take a mental trip back in time to discover the close and timeless relationship of the Greek people with the sea.
After 2 years of major restoration of the interior, the Tower of Winds in Athens’ Roman Agora can be now visited as a whole (first time in modern history). The monument gave its name to the neighborhood around it, “Aerides”.
The exhibition aims at providing wider knowledge about the oldest Greek oracle, tracing the way it functioned, its role and importance in the ancient world, and at the same time showcasing the human need to predict the future.
