A national hands-on exhibition for children ages 6 and older.
Budding archaeologists can visit the Temple of Zeus at Olympia and assist in the reconstruction of a 3-D temple, learn about column construction, sculptures, and the giant statue of Zeus (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World).
The tour guides are the great gods Zeus, Poseidon and Athena who reminisce about their powers and responsibilities. Visitors can also climb inside a 12˝ foot tall Trojan Horse before stepping into Homer’s great epic poem, The Odyssey. Plus, visitors explore actual examples of ancient Greek artifacts: painted pottery, coins, votives, drinking cups, loom weights, arrowheads and sling bullets.
