Very interesting gallery with some modern art from the twentieth century. It`s also a good place to relax from the crowds and the sun outside.

The Gallery is a nice breath of fresh air from all the crowded areas, the hot sun and the paved streets.

A gallery housing in 4 or 5 large rooms some of Greeks finest artists. Cool on a hot day, toilets- a break from the busyness of the Old Town shops & cafes. I enjoyed the work of Yannis Tsarouchis he is is probably one of the most significant Greek painters of the twentieth century.

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
