This article examines the potentiality of the dissemination of natural sciences not in the usual science museum environment, but in the archaeological museum. The aim is to highlight the existing interfaces between the fields of archaeology and the natural sciences in the setting of a Greek archaeological museum so that its ex-hibition space can serve as a field for non-formal education for dissemination of natural sciences as well. Start-ing with the investigation of the necessity of such a choice, which follows the international trend of interdis-ciplinary interpretation of museum collections and dialogues between permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of different disciplines, it identifies the following four interfaces: a) archaeometry, b) conservation, c) ancient Greek science and d) ancient Greek technology and art. Finally, it examines the feasibility of design-ing a ‘science educational islet’, a museum structure mainly addressed at school groups that embodies the relationship between natural sciences and archaeology as a result of both didactic and museographic transpo-sition simultaneously.
