Lost Atlantis Museum in Santorini
Many places have claimed the origin of lost Atlantis. However we have so many reasons to believe that this ideal city was actually in Santorini!
Atlantis is probably the most famous mythological city worldwide. All of us have seen a movie or read a book that refers to this advanced ancient civilization that disappeared 3.600 years ago by a massive volcanic explosion. Are you ready to explore it and watch it come to life with augmented reality?
The myth of lost Atlantis inspired one of the most significant Greek philosophers, Plato. He wrote about this ideal city and this great civilization where highest ethical values were dominated. The interactive videos will help you connect Plato’s Lost Atltantis myth with the volcano eruption of Santorini.
Among the highlights of the museum is definetely the 9D experience and the animated hologram of Plato. You can actually discuss with him about his theory that Santorini could be the origin of the Atlantis myth.
This museum is the first worldwide dedicated to lost Atlantis and opened its doors to visitors on May 2020. It is located in a 700 square meter facility with great ease of access and parking in the village of Megalochori. The visit and experience last about one hour. The engaging technologies have been introduced in the best way and make the visit unforgettable.
