The Inventions of Ancient Greece

January 15 - March 17

Science Centre

Time travel to Ancient Greece, explore and be amazed ! For the curious, the creative, the scientist and those who want-to-know !

This exhibition of replicas of over 40 inventions span a multitude of disciplines -automation, programming, astronomy, time-keeping, music and more; and all exhibits are accurately built, referenced from ancient texts, and most of them are fully functional.

More than 2,000 years ago ancient Greek technology invented world’s first laptop, discovered a link between trickling water and the first alarm clock and designed an automatic holy water server coin collector which paved the way for today’s vending machines. Philon of Byzantium invented the first humanoid robot servant while the Pantograph of Heron was a photocopying tool to copy drawings and figures.

Visitors can dress up at the Instagrammable dress-up corner, donning costumes and props to become Greek warriors or goddesses.

Free for children below 3 years.
