"Voyage", today until 2017 May 28, Athens Greece

Seafaring and Shipbuilding in Greece from Antiquity to Modern Times


Seafaring and Shipbuilding in Greece from Antiquity to Modern Times

  • The exhibition presents more than thirty handmade wooden models of Greek ships, which date from prehistoric times to the middle of the 20th century.

    The exhibits, of remarkable size (0,60 m. to 1,50 m) and excellent, detailed construction, combined with the well-designed presentation, offer the visitors the possibility to study the models at their leisure and in depth, and thus better understand the development of shipbuilding from antiquity to the beginning of the 20th century.

    The goal of the exhibition is to present to the visitors, in a coherent and comprehensible manner, the history of Greek seafaring and shipbuilding, giving them a chance to take a mental trip back in time to discover the close and timeless relationship of the Greek people with the sea.
