An extraordinary collection of works by Greek artists of the Generation of the '30s. The fifth floor is Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas' studio and the fourth his house while the third floor houses a collection of his works. That is all I had time to see since I got there one and a half hours before the closing time. The staff kindly encouraged me to go back the next day with the same ticket but unfortunately, I couldn't make it. I will certainly visit it again, as there is so much more to see. Don't miss it!

In the centre of Athens, close to the Hotel Grande-Bretagne, is the house and studio of Nikos Ghika (1905-1994), one of Greece's most important modern artists. Built for him in 1934 and extended in the 1950s, one visits his atmospheric studio on the top floor with his beautifully furnished apartment and splendid terrace below. The other floors - since taken over by the Benaki Foundation - now consist of a wonderful museum of modern art with sculpture, paintings, tapestries, ceramics, manuscripts, prints and historic photographs. There is also a donation of fine furniture and pictures brought from Paris. This is a privileged visit, open Wednesday to Sunday 10-6 pm.

A hidden gem in downtown Athens. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, personal objects and manuscripts of the most important greek artists of the 20th century, including the nobel prize diplomas to Seferis and Elytis, can be found in this gallery that has previously been the house of the great greek painter Nikos Hadjikyriakos Ghikas.

I had an included ticket from the hop-on-hop-off bus and when I showed this to the man at the front counter he pretended that he had never seen one before. He then only allowed me in the one room to look at the artists paintings. It is tucked away and hard to find so I wouldn't waste my time as there are so many other lovely places to visit in Athens.

Having a few hours to kill between planes I went into the centre of Athens and visited this lovely place, a branch of the Benakis Museums. It was a revelation. If you are interested in 20th century art and the way that various movements influenced the work of artists in different countries you will be delighted by this place. The crowning glory (literally so, as they occupy the two upper floors) are the dining room, living room and studio of Ghika himself. These are furnished in beautiful and eclectic style combining mid-century concrete with antique pieces from his house in Hydra.

One of the best things was that there were 3 of us in the museum all the time I was there, on a Saturday afternoon.

Hidden in the heart of Athens on 3 Kriezotou St, just off Panepistimiou St, and across from the Hotel Grande Bretagne there is a little museum dedicated to the work of Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas (1906-1994), his works can also be found in the New York Met and the London Tate Gallery. Among his paintings and sculptures we can find works from other Greek and International artists of his time, giving us an interesting representation of Art in the 20th century.
The museum is a delightful oasis in the heart of this busy city,

It is housed in the painter's apartment building (work by K. Kitsikis), ground floor and five floors. The extremely rich collection of exhibits leads to a fascinating journey through the history of all Greek artistic and intellectual creation, from the end of the First World War onwards.
PS In contrast, the seasonal exhibition of the ground floor for Seferis and Nobel is extremely poor and sketchy. Pity!
