The Science of Archimedes
Artisans of Florence
Waikato Museum is the exclusive New Zealand venue to host this international touring exhibition showcasing the inventions and scientific discoveries of Archimedes, the ‘Father of Modern Science’. Visitors will experience an absorbing journey through history featuring the machines of the ancient world. While the concepts are centuries old, many of these pioneering technologies have been adapted for use today. With computer-modeled animations, interactive machines and an activity station, this exhibition is designed for all ages.
This official catalogue of the Eureka: The Inventions of Archimedes exhibition takes you even closer to the ‘Father of Modern Science’, his legacy and his groundbreaking inventions.
Each of the exhibited artefacts and interactive reconstructions of technology and machines is described in the catalogue.
The exhibition is on now until 24 June 2017.
