    ANA-MPA -- The National Archaeological Museum has opened most of its exhibit halls with newly-hired personnel, while an additional 20 hirings will be held through an NGO shortly to handle its increased visitors flow in the summer, its deputy director, Georgios Kakavas said on Wednesday.

    The museum, with 64 exhibit halls covering 9,000 square metres, needs 173 guards in order to be open with double shifts from early in the morning to late evening, Kakavas said. A recent hiring of 40 guards allowed it to expand its schedule and remain open all days.

    Its summer schedule is currently formulated as follows:

  • Mondays, 1:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

  • Tuesdays through Saturday, 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

  • Sundays, 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

    The Antikythera Shipwreck exhibition, highlighting the finds of a shipwreck off southern Greece (including the familiar image of the Antikythera Youth and what is dubbed as "the oldest calculating machine ever found"), is on show at the Museum until August 31, 2013. A section is devoted to explaining the mechanism and showing modern attempts at recreating its extremely complicated inner workings.
