    I was somehow hoping for a little more than what they had, but I don’t regret going. The exhibits were nice, but mind you it’s all physics - no magic tricks involved. Is probably very much fun and a great way to entertain the kids after dragging them through the historical sights.

    An exceptional place for children in Athens to play and learn. We spent there with my daughter 2,5 hours and we will definitely go back. She enjoyed the food pyramid of Mediterranean diet, the bubbles lab and the unique super market for children. The most fantastic is that it it free and there are extra activities organizes every week.

    It’s well worth the time spent with this interesting chronicle of Greek education, focussing on the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Passing along a pleasant courtyard with seating and tables, the displays are housed in a fine building from the mid-19th century.

    Chronicling the transition from an education dominated by the church to a more state overseen system is well covered.

    Classrooms with desks, blackboard and learning paraphernalia are evocative. An exhibit in miniature of a school with all its detail is very well composed.

    Many books and volumes, in a number of languages, are shown. Illustrating once again the broad sweep of learning.

    We went to the museum around noon with our two daughters and they both enjoyed it very much, each one exploring the exhibition on her own way. The exhibition is about ANGER! And there are so many different exhibits about it that when you leave ou have the feeling that you have really seen all aspects of anger! They made drawings about anger, created their stories and read the tale of the museum. The staff were very calm and polite and guided us through the exhibition. Any time we had a question they were always happy to help us and provided suggestions.
    The Museum has also an interesting small shop from where we bought a poster with emotions. The poster is still on our fridge and we use it almost daily by putting on our special magnets showing how we feel! It has helped both little ones to build emotional awareness and it's also fun!
