    What to Expect
    Visit: Tecnoparco Museo di Archimede, Viale Giuseppe Agnello 26, 96100, Syracuse, Sicily Italy

    Near the Archaeological Park of the Neapolis, about 200 meters from the Greek Theater, you will find yourself in a green and relaxing space, where the passion for science, for Archimede, for the country's history and culture will make you dive into the past of Syracuse and into your scholastic reminiscences. 
    The museum has an audio-visual route illustrating the life of the scientist, thus allowing you to frame the character in the historical period in which he lived. The park is then divided into thematic areas: the first area is that of simple machines, where you can admire examples of levers and applications related to mechanical advantage, such as hoists and winches. Another area illustrates the evolutionary path of catapults and ballista between the 5th and 3rd centuries B.C. These are reconstructions of life-sized war machines invented or augmented by Archimedes to defend the city of Syracuse during the Roman siege in the third century B.C.
    There is also a lifting machines section, that highlights the use and classification of these machines in the Hellenic and the Hellenistic period. In the area dedicated to hydro-statics and hydraulics there are communicating vessels, siphons, The Vine of Archimedes, Ctesibie Pumps and evel pumps. Two water clocks follow, a press for grape pressing and the 'ustori' mirrors. Extensive explanatory captions are placed near the machines.
    The Technopark Archimedes represents an enormous historical and scientific cultural stage for those who wish to do cultural tourism in Syracuse; it is also an exciting opportunity for students who wish to enriching their knowledge.

    We went there 22.07.2019, with 2 boys (6 and 9 years old) and we really loved it. The english speaking guide (Lucia, I think) was one of the best I have ever met, so much positive energy and enthusiasm it was just awesome. All the...More

    Not a "museum" for everyone, but I liked it. Some call it spendy (6 euros), but we were there quite a while. There are about 30 run-down real-life examples of things Archimedes was supposed to have invented (stretching things a bit). Plus you get to...More

    As other reviews state, this is a compact, simple, hands-on museum providing practical demonstrations of 25 machines (mainly weapons of war) that Archimedes invented. The museum is an easy 5 minute walk from the Parco Archeologico della Neapolis if you are also planning to visit...More
