Science Intro Science

The Museum presents part of its scientific research to the general public during the annual Science Week, organized by the Ministery of Development. In 2006, we presented our work on the reconstruction of extinct animals. For this, we work together with the painter Alexis Vlachos (Athens). Another part of the exhibition was devoted to another research highlight: the role of extinct animals in the ecosystem of their time.

Database Database

The major part of the collection is stored and has an entirely scientific purpose. Our priority goes to the scientific value of the specimens, their storage and accessibility for researchers. The specimens are now digitally available through our database. Highlight of the collection are the specimens from the classic locality Pikermi. The collection further contains several type specimens, dissertation collections, acquired material from elsewhere and collections originating from excavations done by museum staff and personel.

Behind the Scenes
Behind the Scences

The major part of the work done by the museum staff and assistents is invisible for the general public. Only the exhibition and the general publications are available to everybody. The main activity is scientific. The museum staff does research into many aspects of life of the past. This reseach is published in international journals, but also in our own journal (Hellenic Journal of Geosciences), and regularly presented to the general public as well
HJG Journal Hellenic Journal of Geosciences

The Hellenic Journal of Geosciences (formerly: Annales Géologiques des Pays Helléniques) is the scientific journal of the Museum. It provides a medium for the publication of original studies concerning with all aspects of the geology of the Hellenic area and the surrounding Eastern Mediterranean regions, which have significance beyond the immediate geographical area.
