II. Technopark. Hands-on exhibits, which visitors are invited to operate and thus understand, in a practical and entertaining way, phenomena and laws of the natural sciences.

The museum also offers guided tours and demonstrations of its exhibition spaces, organises temporary exhibitions, publishes books, has set up the Creation and Innovation Centre, organises conferences, and promotes its educational aspect with events addressed to children aged 11–18.

In this context, it celebrated the turn of the millennium, in association with the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace, by organising a biotechnology exhibition in Warehouse 3 in the port (1 October – 15 December 1999). The purpose of the exhibition was to help people form personal opinions about future aspects of biotechnology that are of increasing concern to society.
