Voyage | Athens | To May 28

To complement its ongoing “Voyage” exhibition, the Herakleidon Art Museum has launched a show on the Antikythera Mechanism. “An Ancient Greek Computer” presents pivotal moments in the study of the most complex mechanism of antiquity (2nd-1st century BC). Displays include models of the mechanism, drawings and radiographs. Meanwhile, “Voyage: Seafaring and Shipbuilding in Greece from Antiquity to Modern Times” explores the history of maritime voyages and naval architecture through about 40 handmade wooden models of Greek ships which plied the seas from prehistoric times to the middle of the 20th century. The ship models were created by Dimitris Maras. Opening hours are Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Fridays to Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
