“Remarkable find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Amazing collection of Byzantine art work and artifacts. Very deceiving as all underground. Could have spent a day here. Very pleasant and a lovely café at which to sit outside, have a ice cappuccino and a spanakopita!

“LOVED it here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

WOW! We stumbled across this museum on the way to the walk up the hill :) We spent a couple of hours here learning about the Byzantine and Christian heritage. This is a fabulous museum with old artefacts, you can get lost in here for hours. I did. But I am a Christian so it means a lot to me. 8 euro entré or something like that.

“A different view of history from the time of Constantine to the Turks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This museum presented a very interesting view of history from the Byzantine Empire history, art, and early Christianity. It is a short walk from a close metro stop.

“Unexpectedly Awesome Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

For a religious museum I thought it would be small and simple. It's the total opposite. You need over an hour to appreciate all the museums icons and artifacts. The museum is very modern with helpful staff and a wide range of Byzantine Art.

“Not to be missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

If your visit to Athens is dominated by antiquities or by the life of the modern city, take a break to explore the medieval past. This well curated museum gives an introduction to the Orthodox Christian past of the city and the country, essential for understanding Modern Greece. The cafe is one of the hidden gems of Athens.
