We saw an exhibition by ten women artists. Tiny little museum but very well done with excellent lighting and an atmosphere of calm. Loved the varied exhibitions. There is a small library for anyone who wants to have a sit and a think.
I have been many times in Athens but this time I found this very interesting private museum full of contemporary art. Beautiful renovated building, central location. There was a very special exhibition of the latest modern art. Very recommendable museum for modern art lovers.

This museum provides a brief and wonderful respite from the antiquities in Athens amidst the tourist shops and restaurants of Plaka and can be visited in under an hour. As it can be overwhelming to process the ancient treasures in their totality while in Athens,...More
The gallery was devoted to a temporary exhibition (Thanassis Makris- In Retrospect). I really enjoyed the art. The building is lovely.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful 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
number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
