'Ancient Rome: Epic Innovators and Engineers' features reconstructions of Ancient Roman technology created by the Artisans of Florence. The Artisans of Florence are the international tour operators for the Museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy. They are responsible for designing, developing and touring interactive scientific exhibitions all around the world. The Artisans of Florence reconstructed Ancient Roman technology for this exhibit using the same materials and techniques the Ancient Romans would have used thousands of years ago.
'Ancient Rome: Epic Innovators and Engineers' was a great exhibit to take my five-year-old daughter too. It's amazing all of the things that they were able to invent over 2,000 years ago like modern-day plumbing, roads, water wheels and sundials. I was also delighted to learn some new things about the Romans, like how they invented stone archways, operated ancient cranes, pulleys, and had water clocks.
'Ancient Rome: Epic Innovators and Engineers' makes for a great activity as part of a family day out in the City of Fremantle.
