    What an unexpected treat. Small museum but delightful exhibits which include models of how ancient greeks got things done, how they built ships and propelled them, how they assembled the parthenon, how they fought their enemies. Only 6 euro, about one hour duration. A lot of fun

    The National Observatory of Athens provides a 1 hour activity some evenings.
    The activity is done as following:
    1) 10 minutes: History about the museum (needs, founder(s), locations, …)
    2) 20 minutes: Visit of a National Observatory of Athens (key pieces and their stories, with some foundation on astronomy)
    3) 20/30 minutes: Each participants has some minutes to watch the moon through the telescope while an astronomer explains some fact on astronomy
    It was 6€ per person, it’s worth it, we spent a great evening and learn some funny facts

    Spent an enjoyable hour or so looking around. Although small, the exhibits are extremely well explained in Greek and English, and members of staff are often on hand to explain things.

    I am a bit of a history nut but still learnt a few things. At the moment there is an exhibition of bronze armour which I think is probably the most complete in the entire world. They are lovingly recreated replicas of - it’s basically the Bronze Age equivalent of the Wallace Collection or the Royal Armouries.

    It is excellent for kids who like mechanical stuff - even bigger ones like me, lol. And also it’s can be done in its entirety in an hour or so so doesn’t over tax the patience of those less fascinated by the exhibits.

    Highly recommended.

    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.
