This summer, the Telecommunications Museum is open and awaits to “cool” you in its spacious and air-conditioned exhibition halls, offering a fascinating journey to the wondrous world of telecommunications.
You have reasons….
This summer, you have 10 more reasons to visit our Museum, as many as our thematic units that cover the thoroughly renovated 1st floor and which unravel the thread of telecommunications history in an interactive manner and with use of modern digital means.
The collections in the renovated hall
The inventions of the ancient Greeks and their methods of communicating with each other, the most important representatives and landmarks in the history of electricity and of its applications, the great invertors Mors, Bell, Marconi and their inventions, the submarine networks and the first cable ship, the rare telephone devices, the phone booths and public telephony, telephotography and the speaking clock, the evolution of telephone lines from copper to optic fiber as well as satellite communications compose the panorama of the evolution of human communication, as this is reflected in the renovated halls of the Museum, following the modern museological presentation and exhibition trends.
The Telecommunications Museum has entered the digital era
However the surprises do not stop here. By visiting the Museum you can “meet” Mors and let him introduce his invention, the Mors telegraph, himself, get a tablet and walk around the areas where submarine cables were laid in Greece by the Thales of Miletus, the first cable ship of OTE. A ship that started as a steamer in 1906 in America and came to Greece in the distant 1946 in order to lay submarine cables. And of course you can visit this ship, climb the deck, enter the master cabin, the helm and the holds via Virtual Reality (VR) technology. Moreover, via Augment Reality (AR), you can feel the experience of a telephone call by "entering" a 1936 phone booth, and, finally, you can "create" telecommunication stories in the sand with the help of the augmented reality Sand Box.
A Museum for the summer, with tours and visual programs
The stories narrated by the Museum never stop and along them the tours to visitors, in groups or as individuals. And one more thing: a visual program for those who want to participate by booking their place via telephone. So, this summer, include the Telecommunications Museum in your go-to destinations and discover the history of telecommunications in any manner you prefer: digitally, interactively or via a tour, regardless of the “path” you’ll choose, the journey will be fascinating!
Have a great summer
