Although many "busy" greeks that walk outside the museum on Patision street never been inside the museum a lot of people know how much history you can find here.... Do your self a favor if you like museums to see some fine exables of ancient greece....

It was originally built in 3 stages at 1880 and many times since then there have been changes in the interior to create more space for new items. In ourdays there is a plan for a new underground level.

I prefer the prehistoric and sculpture collections but there are also some other collections: Bronze, Egyptyptian, Stathatos, Thera, Pottery & small Ornaments etc

The museum is open daily 8.30-15.00 (tuesday to sunday) and 13.30-20.00 (monday). The cafe on the garden is very popular too.

The entrance fee is 7 euros (3e reduced price for EU citizens over 65).
There is free entrance the first sunday of every month except July/August/September) all all sundays between November to March. It is also free on june 5, april 18, may 18 and september 27.

Address: 44 Patision street (28th October Str)
Directions: 10' walk from Omoneia square. Alternative take troley buses n.2-4-9-3-13-7-8 and many others that stop just outside the museum. 28th October Street is known as Patision street if you ask a local

    Oh help please, who is the guy in your last photo? I know that he was in my history books. Or I think he was. But his face with the curled beard looks familiar.

      Ah ok, thanks! Haha, but isn't it amazing that I remembered having seen him after 40 or so years?

      it's a popular picture for us but maybe it's in every history book about Greece
