This year, children, parents, friends, families, adults, everyone who will come to the Goulandris Natural History Museum’s Christmas programme, will decorate the Christmas tree alongside Dinosaurs!!
At the GAIA Centre Atrium, the Art Group “PARODOS” presents a fantastic show full of surprises and … natural history. Dinosaurs and other prehistoric beings become part of the plot of an exciting Christmas story.
In the Amphitheatre, the great artist Yiannis Dagiakos will perform a Shadow-Puppet Theatre show. Our traditional hero, Karagiozis will entertain in a funny, moving and in addition, educational manner the younger generation with the play “Karagiozis’ Christmas DREAM” .
In the ‘Dinosaur Workshop,’ kids will travel to the time of prehistoric creatures through painting and handcrafts creating projects, which they will be able to take home with them.
And, of course, our visitors will have the opportunity with the entrance ticket to see the two (2) permanent (Natural History and GAIA) and (2) temporary exhibits of the Museum: ‘Minerals and Man’ and the New Digital Exhibit ‘Earthquake at the Museum,’
The renewed Museum shop is waiting for you with a special array of objects to choose from as presents for the children and your loved ones.
