Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology
#12 of 295 things to do in Athens
Super fun especially for kids to explore ancient greek inventions and the history of them.
Almost all the exhibits are hands-on so it would be great for children although thankfully they have deactivated the “machine gun crossbow” (I can’t remember the name!).
