Super cool! We learned more about the Greek history and had very much fun in the 9d cinema! Jump scares and thrills. Seeing the reconstruction of the Knossos Palace was a great addition to visiting the ruins.

Me and my friends visited this on a trip to Chania, and we loved it! The 9D experience was incredible, and the 3D paintings were very realistic. The staff were also very kind, and offered to take pictures of us.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We are a 3D Museum & 9D Cinema, themed around Europe’s oldest civilization, the Minoans. If you’d like to read more about the Minoans have a look here.

A 3D Museum is a museum you can interact with. Elaborate paintings and statues are waiting for you to snap a picture with and watch them come to life through your phone’s camera. We utilize forced perspective as our way of giving your picture a 3D appearance.

No, we are not. According to the Greek legislation system it’s not allowed for private individuals or businesses to own archeological artifacts. Thus, our exhibitions are carefully handcrafted replicas and original art based on frescos found in Crete and Santorini.

Our 9D cinema is a unique combination of a FullHD 3D projector with 3000 WATT 5.1 surround audio and 11 special effects that offer a fully immersive experience.

Our special Effects include:

  • Movement and earthquake simulation

  • Wind

  • Rain

  • Snow

  • Bubbles

  • Lightnings

  • Smoke

  • And many more waiting for you to discover!

There are no age restrictions since our movie is education focused, but we recommend the 9D Experience for children above 3 yo. Children under 3 yo, can be seated on the parent’s laps, for free (with no headsets). The chairs are moving, it could get loud and immersive with all the special effects, we do not guarantee that they might get bothered.

 

Due to the nature of our 9D movie, motion is part of our experience. While it’s not very intense, pregnant women or people who suffer from chronic back pain, vertigo or motion sickness might feel a small level of discomfort. Regular, not moving seatings are available and during the whole time there is personnel available that can assist you. Please inform us beforehand for any health related matter.
