Whatever theme, activity, museum or exhibition you choose to visit, it is guaranted to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, combining knowledge and fun in every step! If you visit Thessaloniki, do not miss this opportunity to attend Noesis as it is beyond the moderate attractions a city has to offer, whatever your age. It is amazing!

I must say, I was brought here by a friend of mine, I have no idea about astronomy or science. And jet, I loved it! The place is new, and provides you with several activities to choose from. I think it's a great idea to spend a day.
