Hellenic Cosmos, the Cultural Centre of the Foundation of the Hellenic World is hosting from October 15 to January 15, 2012, for the first time in Greece, the blockbuster exhibition Myths & Monsters, which was originally presented at London’s Natural History Museum, attracting over 250,000 visitors.
'Myths and Monsters' Exhibition Comes to Athens
In an area of around 600m², the exhibition features impressive, natural size animatronics -mechanical simulations of organisms that liven up in front of the viewer in real time through advanced robotics and computer systems- models, displays of fossils, graphics and photos of mythical or really existing creatures in order to examine some of the best-known ancient myths and the possible scientific explanations behind them.
The exhibition is accompanied by an educational programme for children, which draws its material from history, zoology, and Greek mythology.
