    The interior design is amazing! You will see a lot of different car models and you can even sit in one of them, located in the entrance. Person of any age will enjoy going in there. Especially the ones who really love cars.

    Cars, red cars and more red cars.
    Due to a flight mishap, I had an extra day in Athens. After a couple of weeks in Greece, as someone else said: ” I was marbled out” and it was a warm afternoon. So what to do? Go to an automobile museum. This is more of a private collection/temple of cars than a museum but what a collection. There is a nice cross section from the start of the 1900s to the 80/90s. Bothe North American and European . It is hard to pick a favourite, but the Ferrari Dino and the E Type were highlights for sure. If you are a car enthusiast, it is well worth the 10 Euro entrance fee. The pictures don't do it justice.

    Museum private tour
    We booked a private tour in English with Miltos and it was so worth it! Miltos is a real trove of knowledge and what we learned from him during the tour was fascinating. Special thanks to the lady at the reception, who accommodated us and made this happen!
    It's really nice to see that kind of comments from our visitors. Thank you very much for your visit and review. Have a great day!

    Nice museum in the heart of Athens
    Visited with a friend. I was expecting something else and I was happily surprised. While the museum is not that large, the selection of exhibits and the overall layout are really nice including same cars that are truly unique and hard to come by in Greece. I would recommend to any car aficionado that happens to be in Athens.

We saw this museum in a local guide, being a huge car nut and motorsport participant my initial thoughts were why would a motor museum in Greece, which as a nation has made very few cars, be worthwhile? Well on our last day we a few hours left and the museum was just around the corner from our hotel (Radisson Blu) we paid it a visit and enjoyed every minute!

The collection is amazing and the cars are all pristinely kept along with all the information on each car, which even I learnt a few new facts on! The cars range from British, American, French, German, of course Italian and some other far off nations. If there was one thing missing, I'd have to say a modern day supercar just to finish the generational walk through all the era's.

If you like cars and a bit of history along with facts and figures, an hour or two here will be a highlight on your visit to Athens.

Don’t let the entrance to mislead you, take the elevator up and you’ll find the museum.

We arrived and we were sure the building is abandoned however we decided to check although it doesn’t looked promising ( dark, dirty, escalators doesn’t work) and we found the entrance.

Once you’re in the museum it’s amazing, a huge collection of cars!!!
Different types, models, sizes, from different years. All cars reserved.
The museum is clean and you’ll find explanations about everything.

We had a great time, it was surprising and fun.

Highly recommended to visit, excellent museum for few hours for couples, families, individuals.

Thanks!

My husband was not interested in one more historical museum so this hit the spot. Fascinating building and displays. We have been to auto museums in the US so one with a European flare was interesting. Even the tire-lined spiral walkway up to (or down from) the 4th floor entry to the museum was fascinating. The staff was pleasant and helpful and even recommended a great restaurant for lunch. (Rosalia)

This place is just amazing and totally worth visiting (it’s a bit off the tourist path - about 15-20 minutes to walk from old parliament). So many stunning historical cars going back to the 1920’s through to the 1970’s (about a 100 in all). Couldn’t stop taking photos and so many came with the history of the car itself. Beautiful old Bentleys, Porsches, Lamborghini’s etc. Spread out over 3 levels it’s a real must do experience (and I’m not a car person either). So glad we made the effort.

We had some extra free time in Athens, and decided to give this museum a try. It’s on three floors of an old building in Athens. It is a private collection with some of the strangest looking autos I’ve ever seen. If you’re a bit of a car nut, it’s well worth the visit.

A nice change of pace, from all the ancient history; these cars 'only' go back to the 1800's (AD).

Wide arrange of vehicles, but I do think there's a little preference for Maserati's. 😜 All in all a nice break from the marble.

We went on a quiet day so done within a short 90 minutes.

Nice collection of cars from past decades. All are in great condition. Some odd European treasures like an Isetta with the door on the front of the car. Some posh limos. Emphasis on sports cars, especially Italian and English. Unfortunately the signs are down at your feet so they are hard to read, and some are in the dark.
