We were walking back from the Acropolis Museum looking for somewhere nice to eat and we found it! The bistro is first rate with outdoor seating, candle lit by the time we got there. They where quite happy to make an omelette to order as my wife is gluten free and has to choose carefully

We were meeting a friend to take us through "yet another museum" as you do get a little museum overload so had lunch at the wonderful restaurant while we waited and the staff there are beyond excellent with constant friendly service and advice on meal choices they were exemplary. Then the museum itself including the back story of the house... More

This museum is so well set out that it would be hard not to appreciate its treasures. There is so much to see and take in that a good deal of time is needed. The restaurant in grounds was excellent and the bookshop very well equipped.

It was my second visit to the museum. Amazing building and displays. A must see in Athens! Make sure you have some time to dedicate, the museum is much bigger than it looks outside. End your visit with a coffee in the garden of the beautiful cafe.

Just back from a week in Greece with an emphasis on Byzantine art. This museum was the centerpiece of our visit and was a great summary of Byzantine art from Constantine to current times. The breath and beauty of this collection is exceeded by excellent historical summaries that accompanies the art. You can see this museum in under 90 minutes... More

Greece's incredible cultural & archaeological patrimony didn't end with antiquity; this first-rate museum dedicated to Greece during the Byzantine era is definitely worth seeing.

This museum is located next to the War Museum of Athens and Aristotle's Lyceum. It seems small at first, but once you start exploring you realize it's actually huge. We spent 3 hours there and still didn't see it all. A must see!!!

While most guides make this a secondary museum, it isn't. In fact it's an exceptional museum and a must in Athens. The Byzantine collection is really amazing and the museum is also a wonderful building. Don't lose this museum, it's a must.
