Please note that the material exhibited changes and so I went expecting to see the Escher exhibit, but it was about Chinese technology developments. I was very surprised by the South facing cart that had an indicator that pointed South without the use of magnets....More

This small museum in a beautiful renovated old building is a perfect stop after a trek up the Acropolis, as it is right on the pedestrian loop that passes the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, ancient theater, etc. It is also surrounded by cafes that serve excellent...More

We decided to include this museum on our itinerary because one of the museum's buildings is on the pedestrian street that connects a metro stop and the Acropolis. The building itself (we visited the Apostolou Pavlou location) is a window into what the grand old...More

This museum has two buildings, we went to the one on Apostolou Pavlou Street, a short walk from the Acropolis. The neo-classical building is beautiful. Don't forget to look at the ceilings. We were there for an exhibit about Greek Shipbuilding on display til mid-2017....More

Small museum detailing the inventions of the Ancient Greeks including jugs that pour either water or wine on demand and the first robot! (Which was also able to pour wine). Doesn't take much time to look round and was only 4euro entry.

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
