Excellent modern art in old town museum - late 19th, early 20th century. I REALLY like the harvesters painting. Nice spacious layout. Cheap at €3. Would have like postcard/poster of some paintings. Spent quite some time looking for the other two museums. Eventually found very modern art open and 100 palms museum shut - no opening times displayed, but we... More

Loved seeing all of the statues and ruins. Great place to go with the entire family. You must pay to get in but it's not too expensive.

Just wonderful to walk around and quietly helpful staff! We rushed it a little as my daughter was in a hurry to get to bigger and older things....but we really liked the displays and I would have liked to stay and consider each display longer,maybe next time.

If you are interested in history, you should definitely visit the Art Gallery. Here you can see all the old Greek sculptures and statues, read some of the history of Greece, and see and read about the old ways of living. The atmosphere is relaxing, and you should really use some hours here.

This was quite a surprise. There are three separate galleries all of which are accessed with one very reasonably-priced ticket. The main one is close to Elephtherias Gate in the Old Town and contains a wide range of works from the past century or so. A second gallery occupies a small building at the top end of Sokratous Street (one... More

Knowing very little about Greek artists, this was a very useful introduction to a range of styles of art work. Well worth the few Euros entrance fee.

There were three(3!) buildings with excellent pieces of painting. You pay one ticket and you can visit and the three. Classic approach and modern artworks. The richest collection were at the the square of Simis but also the Nestoridion Melathron Museum which is at Square of " 100 Chourmadies" near the Aquarium has very interesting paintings although less in number.

In fairness we should have allowed more time for this,so really I can only give a short opinion unless I visit again. I have visited better ,and worse within a gallery. Perhaps you need to view for yourselves with more time than I had

We didn't know what to expect. The collection is very broad in styles. There is something for everyone and a visit can be put in anybody's schedule (maximum 30 minutes).
