This was absolutely wonderful - the Athens equivalent of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. A must for anyone interested in costume, textiles, interiors and decorative arts. An extensive collection of traditional Greek costumes and jewellery and fascinating objects from all walks of Greek life in a great building. To my surprise, it also had some Coptic textiles. Fascinating Turkish/Egyptian/Italian cultural crossovers. Very nice balcony restaurant. Unmissable.
