A proper accounting of ancient Greece isn’t kid stuff—did you see 300? This $1.6 million exhibit plays down the full-frontal nudity and avoids adultery and murder all together. Younger ones can experience Homer’s Odyssey, starting with an escape-the-Cyclops field filled with life-size fuzzy sheep. Older kids will want to examine a model of the Antikythera mechanism, a 2,000-year-old bit of scientific machinery believed to have tracked planetary movement. Corny parents get to say, “It’s all Greek to me!”
