It is a quite interesting museum, although quite small. Free entrance, Kind of an installation style, with screens and maps and videos. Screens are interactive, with multiple choice questions, kids loved that. However, the location is not convenient, you better take a taxi as we did - it is cheap, about 10 euros. There is a philosophy workshop that combines a visit at the museum and philosophy at the adjusted Plato's Academy Park, but unfortunately we did not take it because you need to book it min 24h ahead.

Not easy to find by public transport but worth the effort. Very well presented and thoughtful. I am an ardent Platonist and found it very inspiring.

I visited this museum along with my 10 and 13 year old k asids. It was about a 15 minute taxi ride from the center of Athens.

My kids liked it and we spent over an hour here. There were rooms with different videos. There were various interactive exhibits. My kids were engaged and explored on their own.

Afterwards, we visited the ruins of Plato's Academy across the street. There is not much there, but I had still made a point to visit.

We also had lunch at a nefarby outdoor Cafe in the shade. After walking around for 5 or 10 minutes, we were able to flag a taxi back to the center of Athens where we visited Aristotle's Lyceum, which had more archaeological remains, but didn't have a related museum.

If you are a fan of Philosophy, Psychology, Education, The civilization of Greece..etc, this place would be a warm-up for you and also to be the beginning of learning stop of this wonderful Greek journey. It would remind us where we are gonna go and a true timeless lesson for human beings

喜歡哲學心理學的朋友,Digital Museum Plato不僅可以帶領你回到教育的初衷,也會讓人重新反省。如同希臘的魅力,這個景點雖將是其中的一小部分,但時日過後Plato的智慧依舊會讓你歷歷在目不能忘懷

If during your visit to Athens you would like to learn philosophy, this is a nice, small and free museum to spend one or two hours at. You will watch interesting short animation movies on philosophical themes and browse computers to learn about Plato, his thoughts and his time. I was interested in visiting the place where Plato had his Academy and was disappointed to learn there is absolutely nothing in what is now a common residential park. However, the fact that this museum is nearby makes a visit to this place worthwhile.

The Plato Digital Museum was a great experience and it was very enlightening. The museum is located near the grounds of Plato’s Academy. Just being there was pretty cool. The museum itself is only about 3-4 rooms and leads you through the contributions Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle made towards the start of western thinking and science. The museum kept me entertained with with a few cartoons, some videos, and some interactive quizzes, etc.

The museum was perfect for someone like me who had little knowledge of the man. They had some cool cartoons explaining his philosophical positions and a virtual reality screen showing how the old ruins of his Academy used to be when they were buildings. I also loved answering the logic questions on this computer game they had. I couldn’t believe this museum was free. I would definitely recommend it if you're visiting the Academy ruins as there are virtually no signs at the site of the ruins.

Plato's museum is one of the best examples of good educationla spaces. Accents of history (Athens and Philosophy at all) are well ell emphasized. I want to thank those people who worked with information and information design. Everything is quite clear, simple and motivating for deeply study the subject.
