Another fantastic display of ancient Greeks' art and artifacts - this time the islands. Collection is of reasonable size - quite manageable for an average visitor. It is also a very pleasant space to seek shelter from the heath of Athens.

The entrance is in a side way but not too diffucult to find. The exhibition starts at the top floor, is airconditioned, and has a lot of interesting items, also some interactive items which the kids liked very much. We liked it very much. It has no cafetaria no longer so take with you a bottle of water!

This museum is not very easy to find but worth a visit. With arts from 3000 BC found on the islands of Crete, Cypros, Naxos and others is a reaffirmation of the historical finds of the same era who are in the Acropolis Museum and in the National Archaeology.

A great museum, not too big, with a set of outstanding collections. The displays are really well done, bringing to life an ancient past.

imagine a very hot spring day and a very calm and peacefull athmosphere as soon as you get into the museum. Was fascinated by the last level around Greek history and family.

We had the opportunity to visit the museum during the exhibition As part of the celebrations for the Year of Constantine Cavafy about the Illustrating poems. It was great. Keep up the good work.

Not easy to find. Walking distance from the parliament. Signage is poor, so locate before hand and do ask (Athenians know their museums) 4 stories, start from top and go down. Basically this is art found in the Aegean Islands, Crete, and Cypros ~3000BC I recommend this being the first stop, followed by the National museum and thirdly by the... More

Ok so we are here for a month and have the time to go back...but if you are only here for a short time I would put this museum on your must see list! It is not very large so it is not as overwhelming as a lot of the other museums and the displays are informative. Pieces that were... More
