In this section of Eureka presented in the building at 37 Apostolou Pavlou Street, war technology is presented in an original and inventive way to excite the curiosity and activate the imagination of the visitor.
Under the auspices of the Ministries of Culture and Sport and Education, Research and Religious Affairs.
The Herakleidon Museum in October 2014 launched a new space of art and culture, situated on the picturesque pedestrian street of Apostolou Pavlou, very near the archaeological sites and the metro station of Thissio.
The beautifully restored 1895 neoclassical building, which bears witness to the craftsmanship of the original construction, was reinforced with concrete walls in the basement in order to abide with current building standards. Furthermore, contemporary concealed wiring was installed, including internet wiring, as well as indirect lighting in order to preserve and enhance the ceiling paintings.
The Museum Herakleidon has been bringing art, education, and culture to the general public since 2004. Its vision is to help prepare young people, both intellectually and emotionally, to face the growing demands of our world. The inspiration for this endeavor comes from the founders Paul and Anna-Belinda Firos.
Today the Museum Herakleidon has evolved into an interactive center for sciences. In the framework of this philosophy, the new, permanent interactive exhibition 'I Play and I Understand', at the 1st and 2nd floors of the building at Herakleidon Str, invites children and adults to come into contact with science, arts and mathematics, through creative play with carefully chosen and designed interactive exhibits.
Based on its philosophy 'Science, Art and Mathematics', it continues to provide original educational programs for students, teachers and adults at its building at 16 Herakleidon Str, as well as exhibitions of art and science at Ap. Pavlou Str.
