The Museum of Ancient Greek Technology of Kostas Kotsanas was inaugurated a few days ago in Katakolon with the presence of numerous officials and residents of the region.
The Museum of Ancient Greek Technology in Katakolon is exceptional, not only for the Greek standards but also internationally, since it was made with care and toil. It is not accidental that all the exhibits of the museum and the supporting materials are created by Kostas Kotsanas himself, after 20 years of personal research, study and construction, without any help or grant from private or public body.
