The Museum Herakleidon has been bringing art, education, and culture to the general public since 2004.
It aspires to help prepare young people, both intellectually and emotionally, to face the growing demands
of our world, both today and tomorrow.
Today the Museum Herakleidon has evolved into an interactive center for popularized science. Based on
its philosophy of Science, Art, and Mathematics, it continues to provide original educational programs for
students, teachers and adults at its building on 16 Herakleidon Str, as well as exhibitions of art and
popularized science at its building on 37 Ap. Pavlou Str.
In the framework of this philosophy, it hosts, until 27 August 2017, the exhibition “VOYAGE-Greek
Shipbuilding and Seafaring from antiquity to modern times”. The exhibition presents the history of Greek
seafaring in the Aegean and the Mediterranean from prehistoric times to the middle of the 20th century:
More than thirty handmade wooden models of ships, works of art, nautical instruments, maps, video
projections, explanatory drawings, a special edition catalogue - and a new section on Antikythera
