This is a fascinating little museum and only 3 Euros. It is on the street between the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora. We were in need of a few minutes sitting down (and a clean restroom) and went into this little gem. It won't be...More

It is right in the Plaka and was very interesting to see the collections of the more modern Hellenic cultures. If you find yourself with some additional time, it is worth it.

What a gem. This small museum of Folk Art includes old Tools, ceramics, wall graphics of how things were with fabulous photo of the Greek people and so much more. Two floors of well presented exhibits. Cost of Entry was 2 euros.

I can't really rate this museum because when we got there (after following signs for many blocks), we discovered it was closed for a move. Call before you go if you're in Athens this spring.

Very nice items and a good temporary exhibit, but some parts closed or empty without explanation, and some packing materials in middle of exhibits.

Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains

Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
