It is a lovely museum easily to go not too far from the center of Piraeus. You have to see if it is open before you go.Interesting ship models.

Its a must see museum for people who love maritime and the sea. The visitor may find rare, old but well preserved equipment related to ships and maritime. Paintings from important Greek painters are also being presented in the museum premises. Due to the large amount of items the visitor may need 1-3 hours to complete his/her tour. Books and... More

We are sailors and sea junkies. This was great for us. It is under the road and inside the Zea Marina area. 4.00euro is good. Great info on islands and history. There is an incredibly jam packed library. Terrific art and naval features.

The Hellenic Maritime Museum was founded in 1949 and is located at Freatida, near Zea Harbour, in Piraeus. Easy access by foot from the center of Piraeus in 15-20 minutes route. The museum exhibits almost 2500 items presenting in chronological order the maritime history of Greece from prehistoric times to the present day. The most interesting detail is that youu... More

Hard to find and looks closed even when open. Very incoherent but some nice items on display. I enjoyed the outside part with artillery pieces the most. Typically no information whatsoever. I guess only for military enthusiasts. The nearby marina is nice for a stroll, verified by my female counterpart.

It's not the easiest museum to find and the place looks closed and locked up. However, you just need to push hard on the door marked entrance and you'll be in. The exhibition is divided into two parts: one deals with the fortification of the harbour by Themistocles in the 5th century BC and the importance of triremes and shipsheds.... More

This is an interesting small museum. It is hard to find if you're using a map, as it is below road level and only accessible by going down to the Zea Marina harbour level. But once in there it is an interesting place to visit. The Greek success at the Battle of Salamis is highlighted and its importance in stopping... More

A bit out of the way but the boys liked it, walking around the ship and seeing the guns, then going inside and passing from section to section, they were so curious and the staff was friendly and helpful!
