#1 of 18 Museums in Syracuse
The inventions and discoveries of Archimedes are a really nicely laid out and working examples of some of his war weapons give as much of an insight into the history of the city as they do the ingenuity of the man.
Ramona was super friendly and we took a selfie together and premises keeper (guy in the right) joined us also :D Interesting place to learn about engineering fundamentals with perfect guide Ramona.

A lovely little place with so much interesting things to see and do - a nice garden with papyrus, a beautiful bottlebrush tree and other plants, many animals (chickens, a peacock etc.), areas and tables for picnic...
A quirky oasis of Papyrus plants accompanied by a diverse host of animals!
#4 of 18 Museums in Syracuse
Highly reccommended for kids of a certain age and those with an interest in, history, Davinci , engineering, and Archimedes!
Most reproduction of the machines can be operated and there is also a workshop to actively interact with the geniuses inventions.

The museum was a wonderful history lesson as well as having a great collection of papryus writings in various forms plus explanations as to its made, There was a good video too that explained the process.
... it was made, and what other uses there were for this big plant (sandals and boats among others and they have examples of both.) in concord with other museums in the area, it is educational as well as historic.

We ducked into this small museum to get out of the rain and were glad that we did!
A small museum that packs a lot in.

It turned out to be just three paintings in a very small, hot, dark room which cost us €7 each - and only one of the paintings was a Caravaggio!
