Amazing little museum full of fascinating models and information. We even had a demonstration of some working examples. Big shout out to Maria who could not have been more friendly or informative in excellent English. A wonderful way to spend an hour or two.

Yes. There are 2 museums - Ancient Greek Musical Instruments 5 mins walk and the Ancient Greek Technology around 10 mins walk. We only visited the latter. I wouldn't like to do the 2 on the same day! The choice is yours.
