Plato’s Museum in Athens: Unforgettable visit even if for wrong reasons

A visit to the Plato Digital Museum in Athens can be truly a great experience for lovers of philosophy, psychology and education. Located at the district of Athens Academy of Plato, the Plato Digital Museum is dedicated to the great philosopher of Ancient Athens and his magnificent work and shows how his thoughts affected philosophical thinking and inspired humanity.

The museum visit can be unforgettable even though also for the wrong reasons: damages on the walking path to the museum, damages that need urgent repair.

The Museum highlights the  historical and archeological evidence of the Academy and  approach of the area of philosophy and ideas using the latest digital and interactive technologies.

Multimedia applications, material and images, multiple levels of information consisting of texts allow the visitor to navigate  both in the area -Academy of Plato and greater area- and in the “world of ideas”.

Exhibitions start from the Academy of Plato, “along the route of the building’s exterior, time counts counter clockwise and visitors see the archeological site’s stages of revelation and discovery,” the website of Plato Digital Museum proudly notes.

Too bad, visitors see also stages of decay and maintenance negligence right outside the Museum that open its gates less than 3 years ago, just in late autumn 2015.

Another foreigner found an excuse for the decay noting, Greeks had a Platonic love for Plato.

All we can add is: we hope the problems are restored as soon as possible.

We are not the kind of people who don’t care about the image of  Greece millions of tourists take with them, are we?
