We decided to go after having discovered those amazing sculptures at the Paul Getty Villa in Santa Monica. Great little museum, excellent display of artefacts, informative explanations and nice cosy café.
A very beautiful, well organised museum. Permanent exhibitions and temporary ones are held throughout the year together with very nice educational programs for every age. Plus a nice shop and caffe for chilling aftering wandering around the floors.
Beautiful and very well organized museum. Start from the top, where an interesting exhibition about life in ancient times. Then go down to see many wonderful artworks. Cafeteria is quite good (but not cheap). 3 hrs at least
Me and my friend really liked this museum. It was particularly enjoyable because the plaques and descriptions did not reference the plethora of ancient Greek names and places. It was also free for us as either students or under 18 years (not sure which it was). We did not see the temporary exhibit of the American artist due to the museum closing, which was disappointing. It's also close to some nice restaurants.
Well laid out, it takes one on a nice progression of history of Greek culture with some very fine pottery examples.
Very interesting and complete museum. Interesting temporary exhibitions on ground floor. A little difficult to find. Enjoyed it very much.
As a museologist I would highly recommend this museum. Not only because of its rich permanent collection, but because of the stunning display, amazing temporary exhibitions and it s super cozy cafe. If you have more time to spend in Athens, then the educational programs offered by the museum (mostly in weekends) are totally worth it for the entire family. check my exhibition reviews #critiqueasamuseumgeek
This museum is gem. Not to be missed. Beautifully curated and displayed. The cafe is very nice with view of garden.
I only visited the café. Excellent service and nice quiet atmosphere. Dishes seemed interesting but I didn't taste any of them. Just a typical museum café. Smoking was not allowed inside.
Really good exhibits on four floors, plus a temporary exhibit on ground floor. Super classy place, seems to have a nice restaurant or cafe. Has a coat and bag check. The main museum and temp exhibit are separate fees, but both were great. Includes a video on final floor - lots to read here, plan for 2 hours or more
An Athenian gem! One of the best musea I have ever seen. Not on the beaten track of the tourist must-see places in Athens. Therefor pretty quiet which is so appropriate when you admire, inspect er even worship (!) these solemn statues. Suddenly Athenian bustling traffic has disappeared and you find yourself in a mysterious world of tranquility and peace.
One of the best choices to visit when in Athens. A unique collection of Cycladic art in addition to a number of exhibitions taking place around the year and outside the permanent one. Great place also to have a light snack. Nice kids programmes and a handful of nicely curated objects on the museum's gift shop.
