We went into the Bistrot adjacent to the museum, on the off chance they would serve a good selection of food. The served a great selection in what was a back yard garden that went on and on. Nice and cool in very pleasant surroundings...More

This small museum does not fulfill its stated purpose. There is an interactive video focused on the major monuments in the city but it does not add much to what all guide books cover. Most rooms are poorly lit ,they exhibit furnishings from the XIXTH...More

This museum was a godsend after the scorching heat of the Acropolis. The museum itself is an architectural delight and the many exhibits within it were great. It would be great to have the opportunity to revisit it again and again as there is so...More

The museum itself is a wonderful experience but the staff need a major seminar in polite manners! Photos are not allowed when worldwide most museums allow it and entrance is charged when again most national museums worldwide are free! Backminded decision makers here!

It was a nice change from all the archeological sites. The city model with videos about the important buldings is really interesting for a first time visitor. The furniture donations give it the feel of a small, modest palace. It is a really nice museum...More

This Museum presents the modern history of Athens. Your tour will also include many other facets of Athenian history, culture and life. Several collections reflect the different aspects of the city offered by the Museum.

URGENT: the museum is nowhere near where it shown to be on TripAdvisor's Google map. The problem is with very similar street names. The museum is at 7 Ioannou Paparrigopoulou, between the Plateia Klathmonos (square) and that National History Museum. Closest metro stop is Panepistimio....More

This museum is probably the only museum in Greece where you can still see the insides of a palace! It contains several objects relating to the everyday life of the King and the Queen. The famous huge painting is somehow unreal!

The museum is small and limited but is definitely worth an hours visit. The huge painting by Jaques Carrey was made 13 years (1674) before the huge explosion in 1674 which did terrible damage on the top of the Acropolis. This painting over 5 m...More

Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
