The Inventions of Ancient Greece: Origins of Our Modern Technology

This exhibition showcases inventions from ancient Greek history that have influenced and laid the foundation for various mediums of works in our time now. From astronomy to programming, from the study of gears to pulley systems and many exciting inventions, this exhibit features technology achievements from pioneers back in time.

Mr Kostas Kotsanas, the founder of Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology, spent years carefully researching and replicating the sources and materials displayed in detail for viewers to fully appreciate them. One of the displays included an olden day hydraulic alarm clock made out of ceramic. Using theories of pressure to create melodious whistles, this was just one of the many clever inventions on display.
