Journey into antiquity in a high-tech learning centre.

Kids love this high-tech museum where ancient history, science and culture come to life through multimedia games. At the Tholos (Dome), the virtual reality theatre, you can watch the Ancient Agora of Athens built from scratch. Test your brain-power in the interactive mathematics exhibition. Or take a trip to ancient Olympia and Miletus in the Kivotos, a virtual 3D time machine. The only drawback is that it's pricy and can be overrun with school parties. And it's in a rather awkward location about 30 minutes from the city centre.

Value for money

Price advice

A €16 ticket gives you access to everything. Or you can buy separate tickets for Tholos: €10, children €8; Exhibition: €6, children €4; Kivotos €5, children €3.

Expert tips

Combine with a trip to the real ancient Agora so that kids can see where all these virtual activities took place.
