Space Travel – 3D
The film presents the great achievements of the space shuttles and the bold pioneers who participated in them. Includes stunning Earth scenes and space work, such as the repair of the Hubble Space Telescope and the assembly of the International Space Station. These space programs taught us how to live, work and do research in space. As the International Space Station operates until at least 2024, the film shows us how we prepare for the next exciting steps in space. “Space Journey” will inspire the dreams of the new generation for new horizons in space and at the same time will make the older ones better appreciate what has been achieved so far.
From 5th grade to adults.
Dream big – The wonders of engineering – 3D
From buildings that touch the sky to underwater robots exploring the seabed, solar cars and “smart”, sustainable cities, the film “Dream big – The wonders of engineering” highlights the human intelligence behind the small and great miracles of technological advances and reveals the creativity and humanitarian feelings that push engineers to create better living conditions for their fellow human beings.
For all ages.
The Dinosaurs – Giants of Patagonia – 3D
The Dinosaurs, which ruled Patagonia billions of years ago, come to life before your eyes and take on a three-dimensional form on the giant screen of the Cosmotheatre.
For all ages.
SIMULATOR – 3D
Wear your 3D glasses, get on one of the three six-seater vehicles, which synchronize with the motion of the image and travel the three-dimensional paths of adventure, then, now, then, to Earth and beyond.

Space mission: Night Sky
A lively tour of the night sky and its secrets, between the constellations and the ancient myths, born from the inexhaustible imagination of people. A long walk to get to know the Earth, the Moon and our solar system.
From 4 years up to DG Elementary.
Space mission 301
Life on Earth appeared billions of years ago and evolved so that people today are looking for other life forms beyond our planet. In our journey we will learn about the conditions that allowed life to appear and exist until today on Earth. We will travel to the nearby planet Mars and the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn to look for the possibility of hiding some primitive life forms. We will learn that astronomers are searching among the billions of stars in our galaxy to find Earth’s twin sister, and we will wonder if in some of these worlds intelligent beings like us gaze at the vastness of the universe and wonder: “Are we alone in the universe?” .
From 4th grade to 6th grade. Duration: 40΄.
Tinkering – I make and learn
It is an innovative approach to learning, which involves the creation of physical objects, using a variety of tools, materials, ideas and methods. The design of the activity, the materials and the way of the facility create a learning experience with a high degree of involvement on the part of the students, with a variety of results. The student through a targeted constructive approach is encouraged to work on a project, an idea or a personal goal, depending on his interests and personal motivations. In this way, skills of the 21st century are cultivated. such as creativity, problem solving ability, perseverance etc. Tinkering activities move across interdisciplinary areas as they refer to subjects such as physics, mathematics, art, engineering and technology.
It is addressed to students of 5th grade up to 2nd grade of high school.
Nanocosm – Introduction to Nanotechnology
Laboratory type educational program
The purpose of the program is to introduce students to nanotechnology and to recognize it as a science that aims to improve materials, products and processes for the benefit of man. Students are familiar with the concepts of nanoscale, nanocosm and nanostructures, as found in nature. Working in groups, they experiment with hydrophilic and hydrophobic natural materials. They study how the properties and characteristics of materials can be changed and improved through nanoprocessing, while they know new materials with wonderful properties.
It is addressed to students of Elementary School up to B ‘High School.
The water show
Come and see the ups and downs of water, to color it, to taste it and to strengthen it!
With water as a key ingredient and a series of impressive experiments, we reveal the properties and highlight the characteristics of water, which make it unique and valuable for our lives.
Aimed at primary school students.
Guided tour of the Museum of Technology
Ancient Greek Technology
Samples of technological achievements of ancient Greece are presented. The exhibits relate to areas of daily life, construction, engineering and others, while highlighting the cultural context in which they appeared.
Vehicles of historical, collectible and educational interest, from the 1920s to the recent past, mentally transport visitors to other eras, highlighting in a unique way the evolution of technology and car design.
The interactive and participatory exhibits at the Technopark encourage the engagement with technology, gradually introduce the visitor to the logic and methods of scientific thinking and make the understanding of basic scientific laws and topics, literally, a game.
Guided tour of the area from DG Primary School.
Duration of visit to the Museum: 60΄.

Genesis – Shadow Art Exhibition until 30/6/2021
The exhibition consists of shadow sculptures *, which follow in time the creation and evolution of the earth, as well as the course of man on it. The sculptures are made of various materials, many of which are recyclable and follow the time periods of history, from Prehistory to the 21st century. It is an enjoyable educational process, a journey through time and the evolution of the earth and man. Through the shadow sculptures the visitor understands the “perspective”, not only as a physical parameter, but also as a philosophical one. The general philosophy of Shadow Art is that we can look at a situation, an event, an object from many angles and draw different conclusions (even the opposite) each time or see different images, the comparison of which can be determine our final point of view. In this way, the visitor, and especially the teenagers, are provided with the appropriate means to discover their world, their personality and their unique way of thinking. At the same time, there is a short video screening, which analyzes how to make shadow sculptures.
Aimed at students from DG Elementary to adults.
Tour duration: 45΄.
