I do not understand the previous bad reviews here. This is a very good museum that shows the unique clever inventions, mechanical and mathematical, of Archimedes, one of the greatest mathematicians of ancient Greece. Enjoying this museum requires active engagement, not passive consumption. It uses...More

When you enter, you go into a small room which shows a video of the whole attraction. Once we paid for 6 entry tickets, we realised that only a tiny portion of the exhibition was open to us. The once english speaking ticket lady suddenly...More

The Arkimedeion (or Archimedes Museum) is overpriced. Around US$9 per person is a bit much, since you can see everything inside in half an hour. It would be better if all the exhibits worked properly and if someone would have proof-read the translations. It's not...More

A fun hands-on math and science museum; a good opportunity to spend an hour exploring a different side of the history of Syracuse. We particularly enjoyed the sand spiral machine, and the sound-focusing exhibit outside .

In Syracuse, a place where Archimedes worked and died one could expect to find a bit more information about this great man. It seems that technological museum "Arkimedion" is the only place in the whole city (at least one easily locatable) where this man is...More

This was an accidental visit on a rainy afternoon and much better than we thought it would be. Lots of interactive stuff, good for the grey cells and would be particularly good with 10 year olds and upwards.
