The "Antikythera Mechanism" Exhibitions

List of countries and cities that hosted the "Antikythera Mechanism within the Astronomy and Technology of its Time" exhibitions.

In some cases, the exhibitions were adapted in order to include objects from local collections, within a wider thematic about time and astronomy.

The 2009-2012 exhibitions were funded by the Hephaestus Project (FP7 - Capacities, Regpot-2008-1) and coordinated by Efthymios Nicolaidis and Yanis Bitsakis.

Part of the material used in the exhibitions was created in the scope of the research carried by Yanis Bitsakis, entitled "Educational aspects of the history of the Antikythera Mechanism ", at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. This research has been co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund – ESF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program "Education and Lifelong Learning" of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) - Research Funding Program: Heracleitus II.

The original fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism are on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.
