Combining historical documentation with modern interactive and audio-visual technologies, the exhibition seeks to offer a unique experience, giving visitors the opportunity to find themselves  "virtually" at the heart of the events of the revolution in Halkidiki, to enjoy exhibits such as weapons and accessories of the fighters, to study letters from the family archive of Emmanuel Papas, but also to be informed, through an interactive multimedia application, about the struggle of the revolution in the region.

The exhibition is structured in 2 sections:
In the first one, indicative objects of the struggle (weapons, swords, etc.) used in the sea and land are presented in showcases. The objects come from the private collection of Vassiliou Nikoltsios (War Museum / Thessaloniki Branch).

The second section presents a 3D projection mapping installation, which functions as a historical documentary that narrates the events of the Revolution in Halkidiki, also acting as a virtual environment for the visitors and placing them in the "centre" of the events. Historical documentation and dramatized narration are combined with modern video and audio technologies. In the context of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Revolution of 1821.
