Piraeus being the biggest harbour of the Mediterranean - what more natural to do than visit the Nautical Museum? We found it after a little bit of struggle. We were the only visitor this morning and indeed found a display of a lot different ships - older and less old. But it was very much up to what you could... More

Do visit this nautical museum, covers local and Greek nautical history from earliest to present. Some shipwreck artifacts as well. Ancient anchors, old glass lighthouse, and check out the ultra rich Greek yachts just across park, views there lovely.

Having enjoyed the maritime museums at Falmouth and Greenwich I was drawn in here and not remotely disappointed. Very different from the British or French (eg Brest) approach but still well done. Go to the website to get the flavour but if you have any interest in the sea and seafarers then this place is easily worth an hour or... More

Having toured ruins for two weeks with little under 2,000 years old, we were looking for something a little more recent. Imagine our shock when the entrance dealt with triremes and amphoras! This, however, was the start of a journey through nautical history almost to the present day. A mixture of models, artefacts from wars, personal items from naval commanders... More

Greece's history in the seas from b.c. cenuries to nowdays concentrated in one museum. Models of anciente triremes to first ocean liners, nautical instruments and many seascape paintings of famus Greeks artists. Worth to see!

This museum has a very nice exterior appearance from a distance, but as you get close up the construction is fairly crude. The holdings consist mainly of paintings, photographs, etc., and ship models--few of which are ancient. For some reason they have a no photography policy--which is incomprehensible given the mediocrity of the holdings and the banality of their presentation.... More

We had outstanding days in Athens.This was the first museum we had ever taken in there. A little bit overpriced. But, for making sure, still worth it to learn about a part of history.
