Excellent art place!
Jun 2019
Having visited the Gallery a few months ago, I left myself astonished and more than thrilled with the entire ambience. It is a very elegantly designed and at the same time minimally decorated art place, located in the Northern subs of Athens with lots of artcrafts, original paintings from famous moderns as well as older European artists and artpieces waiting silently and patiently for the visiting admirers to be left with open mouths! It's a must and highly recommended both for art experts and ordinary people to come along and dedicate 1 hour of their lives to get lost in that ''ocean'' of fine art! Most importantly, there is free entrance for everyone!

So much to see - but it could be even better.
May 2019 • Couples
Free entry to this large, eclectic collection of art, built up over the years by a private collector and now open to the public. It spreads over 2 or 3 floors (one was closed when I was there) and there's a suggested route to follow through the many rooms. The lowest level is chock full of drawings and watercolours, with oils, sculpture and other media upstairs.

There's lots to see, and lost to interest art-lovers, in many different styles and (it has to be said) of varying quality. Exhibits are labelled with the name of the artist, and dates, but no other info is available. Plus the works are rather squashed in (so many objects, but the gallery size is of course limited).

I felt slightly disappointed that there was no information about artists, schools, styles or traditions here. I enjoyed looking, but didn't learn much. It could be so much better curated - but I suppose that would mean (because of space limitations) having some stuff in storage. And probably funding it with entry fees.

But if you are visiting Athens and have had enough of ancient ruins, hop on the metro to the end of the line and pay this place a visit. It has its own charm, and the location (Kifissia) is a nice place to see, as well.

Great selection and informative staff.

Spacious enough to take a seat and drink it all in. It doesn't seem to get busy.

A hidden gem? Well worth a visit
Oct 2018 • Couples
Well it’s not so much hidden as we found it hard to find. Very discrete entrance with no garish signs but do take the trouble to find it. An eclectic collection of modern and contemporary art beautifully displayed in a lovely building. Lots of cool marble. Helpful, friendly staff. This picture will give you a better idea of where it is situated.

It in a very nice place, where you can spent your spare time, enjoying contemporary and modern Greek Art. There is no entrance fee. The Musseum is in the heart of Kifisia, it is located in a very nice place and aroud it, you can find many nice places to enjoy a cup of coffee or a meal.

Very intersting place - worth to visit
Jun 2015 • Solo
If you have some spare time and you would like to "make a break" from the Greek ancient arts and history and to learn something more about the contemporary and modern Greek art, it is really great idea to visit this place. If I remember well, there is no entrance fee and you can freely spend some relaxing time examining the contemporary Greek arts at this place. It is very friendly environment and there is very friendly but discrete staff. If you like arts in general, you would like the Gallery itself. Although, maybe you would not be that much impressed with the various artworks, but still this is a matter of taste and personal approach. The Gallery has like a small garden, but if I remember well, there is no coffee shop, which is pity, since the place is very friendly and it would be nice to get hide from the noisy Athens and to have cold drink or “frappe” here, before or after enjoying the art pieces of the contemporary Greek artists.
If you would really like to learn about Greece from the various perspectives, you have to see something belonging to the modern (actual) Greece. The area where the Gallery is located, Kifissia, is very nice and noble part of Athens, with nice and quiet restaurants, shops, coffee shops, nice parks, but very quiet and without too many tourists.
