Strange creatures at the Museum
The newly launched activity for kids is called Strange creatures at the Acropolis Museum and runs from 7 November until 27 March. The activity is built around animals and the mythical creatures of Ancient Greece. Children are challenged to explore what is truly the Hippalektryon, a rooster or a horse? A real mystery! And what about Centaur, Typhon, Triton, and so many others? They will discover the creatures of the earth, the sea, and the air, all creations of the imagination of the ancient Greeks. Children will be given materials to take home and create their own strange creatures. If they choose to do so, they can photograph their artworks and upload them on the website of the acropolis museum in Athens for kids!
