The Museum was founded in order to be a place where the visitor will be able to learn about what learning, education, schools, students and books were like in earlier times, when students were required to wear blue aprons.
In the Museum you can see:
- books, objects and supervisory material used over time by the Greek school
- a retrospective starting from the ancient vase depicting the student and the teacher during the lesson to today's classroom
- from the waxed signs (plates) where they wrote with the fund, to notebooks, pens (we call them pens today), parchments and papyri to computers
- from ink, tubers, pens, inkwells to today's writing instruments
- from the ancient slabs with the sand to the newer ones with the fund
- from the signs on which the students wrote names or did rough arithmetic operations or wrote the punishments ("philoponei oh pai, mi daris") to the Oktoeihi and Psaltiri (reading books and alphabets of the Turkish rule) to today's school textbooks.
In the exhibition, a lesson day 70 years ago is recreated.
The teaching material of the courses of that time as well as the teaching method and the supervisory means are also presented.
