National History Museum (Old Parliament) Reviews
Yksi erilainen kohde ainakin nyt vuodet 2019 - 2021, jolloin alakerran pysyvän näyttelyn täydentää yläkerrassa oleva lähinnä nykyisen Kreikan itsenäistymistarinaa 200 vuoden takaa kertova Playmobileil... more »One different item at least now for the years 2019-2021, when the downstairs permanent exhibition complements the upstairs version of Playmobiles, which is mainly the current Greek independence story of 200 years. Downstairs is a normal painting of long-lasting males from the back of centuries, guns, swords and a couple of cannons. At the end of the rounds there is a female folk thought of national costumes and jewellery. The salt of the children's family is as follows some of the Playmobil version, which is implemented at the top of the year's changing exhibitions. The various stages are presented more than a metre in the glass boxes, which are rich in detail for children to be found and mirable. At the same time, you have the option to read the background of the event in English from the wall. The place is also cost-effective, as our four-piece family paid a total of €6. The children's grade (5v and 11V) was higher than the one in the ancient Greek museum, although there are even better destinations for the family of families in Athens.
