Maybe now we don't always "stay at home", but the Telecommunications Museum continues its digital activities with new educational programs, another digital application, a new history and another exhibition on the "front page"!!
Visual arts activities
"Thalis the Milesian", the first cable ship in Greece, and William Marconi, the Italian inventor who discovered radio waves for remote communication, are waiting for you to give them their own color! Print the sketches, get markers and with a lot of imagination…. color them!
Tsarouchis' "sailor" gets on the cable ship/Mixed technique, acrylic, collage (7-12 years old)
With the help of a video, you can find out about the ship "Thalis the Milesian" and its role in sinking submarine cables, as well as the multifaceted works of Giannis Tsarouchis. Then you, with the materials we give you, create your own painting, with your "own" sailor, as if he were a member of the ship's crew!
Making a board game/Taboo game
Create your own board game with improvised cards and themes inspired by the forms of communication in antiquity, famous inventors, and telephone devices of yesterday and today. Make "teams", read the rules, start the game and ... "the best wins"!

The "visits" to the digital points of the exhibition continue
This week, "tour" the museum building and learn its history. Also, discover the call centers and see them come to life in front of you, just like they did in previous years!
The exhibit of the week
Last week, it was a source of inspiration for our little friends, who painted it with a lot of imagination. Now it's time to take a closer look, explore and learn, almost everything about it. We are talking about the Candlestick telephone device since 1880. A device that, due to its shape and construction, became known as "Candlestick"!
Moreover, don't forget Thursday's "appointment" with the telecommunications stories. This time you will know the history of video games or how the "father" of computers lost from the same game he made!
The Telecommunications Museum will offer weekly activities for children, adults, and families. "We stay safe", we spend our free time happily and creatively!
