    Excellent Museum! This is a must see in Athens. I almost took it off my to do list but very glad I didn’t. Very interesting demonstrations by the staff in the museum and even in English. Very much appreciated. A great look into the way the inventions of nowadays have come to exist. Very informative little museum was well worth the visit. Easy to find and walk to in 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.

    Small museum in 2 parts, the larger on a side street. We only went because we passed by on a walk. Inside were excellent displays of Mycaenaen and Athenian science, engineering and mathematics. Want to know what a trireme looks like? How the walls of Athens were defended (and attacked)? How the Parthenon was built? It's all here, along with some really quirky inventions. Highly recommended.

    Not so much a museum as a series of interactive illusions. Child friendly but it also means that you will have lots of children around you... being children!
    Staff on hand were great and helped explain what to do and take fun pictures. Not extensive time wise and you are time limited anyway but it's just about right and we all enjoyed it.

    The Hebrew or Jewish museum of Athens is great. Kind staff, modern interiors, interesting exhibits, and as well more positive surprises!

    I enjoy old coins. I love Greek history. This is the perfect combination. My wife and I took our time and went from exhibit to exhibit taking photos of our favorite coins. I think my wife photographed the whole collection ---or close to it.

    For some reason, there was no admission charge the day we went.

    He was a master maker of fine jewelry, much of which is on display.

    Go right after or before Acropolis Museum- it is that close!

    It was interesting to chat with a jewelry artisan.

    The rooftop cafe has glorious views.

    Small but interesting museum about musical instruments and music from the region. You can listen to samples. Welcoming staff.

    We came here on a Saturday morning to visit the Industrial Gas Museum. Very quiet - we were the only people for most of the time we were there. The Technopolis site is a complex of buildings used for events, and also has the preserved buildings and equipment of the old gas works. You pay €1 each and can then follow the numbered areas to go through the various processes of refining the gas for consumer use - very interesting and well worth visiting. Also there is a "skywalk" playground which has a high walkway suitable for older children. Easy to get to - we used the trolleybus from Omonia and it is also next to Kerameikos metro.

    Lesson learned, do this without a guide. We used a guide and she focessed on one story and repeated it all the way throughout the museum bypassing a lot of exhibits. We ended up departing our group and walking the museum ourselves. The museum it's self is fantastic and has an archeological dig site underneath which is also great.

    Excellent place for large scale meetings and symposia. Plenty of space inside and outside where there should be more shadow. Bar is rather inefficient in large events. Also there is an inefficiency in reaching the venue by public transportation as there are a couple of busses servicing only. No metro 🚇 or tram 🚋 and train 🚉.

    We spent an enjoyable hour here strolling around the art exhibition. The building itself is beautiful inside and out. Especially enjoyed the cafe, which brought a little elegance to the enjoyment of the very necessary refreshments on a rather warm day. Interesting gift shop too.
    Somewhat off the tourist track so unlikely to be crowded. Well worth a visit.

    This little museum is right around the corner from the National Archaeological Museum. Understandably they don't get many visitors (the staff even thought I came to the wrong place!) but it's included on the €15 museum combo ticket so definitely pop in when you're doing the National Archaeological Museum. It's full of Greek inscriptions and the leaflet and the panels give you a lot of information. The staff are really friendly (I guess they don't get a lot of visitors nowadays) and they even gave me a sheet with an explanation of the Greek alphabet! They closed 30 minutes earlier than advertised though so I had to rush through, which was a shame.
