You’ll travel to Mt. Olympus, so to speak, when Chicago’s new National Hellenic Museum debuts its first major exhibit, “Gods, Myths and Mortals: Discover Ancient Greece,” on Dec. 10.
The 4,000-square-foot, interactive, family-friendly exhibit, which will christen the museum’s new home at 333 S. Halsted, will feature a 13-foot Trojan Horse (suitable for climbing), a “Greek Idol” sirens karaoke cave, a working replica of the Antikythera Mechanism (purported to be the world’s oldest computer) and an interactive model of Homer’s “Odyssey.”
