Unless you are a super geek this is not really going to float your boat. It's small and relevant but you do need to go out of your way to see it and I can't say you'll spend your time wisely if you do. You're better off going to see a puppet show.

The fact that we could just walk around the park by ourselves and take a closer look to the objects without a rush was simply great. You could also touch and take pictures of objects! After the tour the staff gave more details about the park and were extremely generous. Remember to ask for a good restaurant! Definitely worth a... More

they want 6 € for this very small park. three people would cost 12 €... its really very small, but it might be interesting for kids. At the end they try to sell you their Archimedis game. People there were friendly, but its absolutely overprized...

This is the funniest attraction I have ever seen.....well it would be funny if it didn't cost €6 each for entry. This is a sad place, full of broken 'exhibits'....half look like a school project and the whole place is unloved and uncared for. You're given an A4 booklet to read but it's difficult to match the correct page up... More

Just been to the exhibition and I feel ripped off. €6 / person for poor explanations and exhibits that were in a very poor state of repair. The signs were so sun faded they could not be read. The whole place seemed uncared for. Shame, as it could have been so much better. In summary not worth the visit

Slightly hidden next to the archeological park of syracuse, follow the small signs to the Archimedes museum. The kids loved running in the garden experimenting with Archimedes inventions. We enjoyed it very much, the people that manage the place were very helpful and kind and showed the kids around. Very recommended.

Poorly advertised from the main road one has to walk all the way to the gate just to find out that from the 15th of September till the 14th of March they only open upon previous phone arrangement. Waste of time?

We much preferred this to this overpriced Arkemedeion in the middle of town. This is a lovely little place to visit. Combine it with theatre or the archeological park. It was good to see the great man's inventions on a more realistic scale.

I always associate Archimedes with buoyancy, pumps and pi, I was much less familiar with the rest of his work. Though this is not in any way a formal museum or an academic endeavour, the models are interesting and informative and I found it well worth a stroll through.
