A unique museum at Ellinikon village, the birthplace of the internationally well known Greek sculptor Theodoros Papayiannis. His work although depicts the tradition of Epirus, is also modern and includes sculptures with ecological meaning or made with recycled material. Even the road to the village is very interesting with some works of art "exhibited" alongside. A visit to the museum will certainly please both adults and kids. Free entrance.

A very original sculptor with modern pieces such as grand totems from recycled material but also some conventional busts as well. The garden is full of other sculptors work and the road leading to the museum too. A very inspiring ambience, Highly recommended!

The museum, unique in its kind as a cultural offer all over Greece, serves and functions as a space of consistent quality, a place that produces innovation and an area which allows the individual to reflect on the local and its relation to the global. The special feature of the Papagiannis Museum is its variety of exhibits, both in its... More

Theodoros Papagiannis has created in Elliniko village, in the mountainous area of Tzoumerka in Epirus, an outstanding cultural experience with two parts. The first part is the museum that houses a collection of his works depicting life in his native village as well as other art pieces of famous or everyday people. The museum also includes a garden with sculptures... More

A small village having this kind of mesum is a blessing. I thought i 'd get bored but there is so much to see. Breathtaking busts, historical engravings and inspirational mixed art sculptures. Papagiannis is a world known artist for a lot of reasons. While taking the turn to visit Hellinikon, his art acompinies you until you reach the museum.

A pleasant surprise for the average visitor who wishes to see contemporary artistic work he can identify with. The museum is well designed and the work of the artist is impressive. Watch the artwork of the same artist on the way to the village and after it on the road to the Tsoukas monastery (which is also worth visiting).

This Museum is situated in the village called Ellenikon and more road signs to the museum should be put up. The museum guide is very good and the artist's work is most impressive. He should be applauded not only for his artistic ability but also for establishing the museum in the Primary School he once attended. Such art is usually... More

The museum was a pleasant surprise. Papagiannis'works of art are an unexpected mixture of traditional and modern elements, and testify to a strong connection with the region's history

In Tzoumerka mountains on the road to small village, Elliniko, you may find exquisite pieces of modern sculpture that overlook the mountain tops and the rivers beneath that are part of the wold nature yet impressive and dominating. And then, there is the museum itself that is the village abandoned school with an amazing collection both inside and at the... More

The exhibition begins right outside the village, in the open air, and directs you to the old school where you can meet history told in a totally different and very interesting way. Let the children wander around the exhibits and follow the helpful and girl who's in charge guide you. The exhibition continues to the exit of the village, still... More
