This is one of Athens' treasures and is worth a visit even though it's located away from the city center, about a mile north of the Plaka. The neoclassical building the collection is housed in was constructed over a 22-year period and was finished in...More

This museum is only for those with keen interest in ancient Greek culture and history. Has various sections depending on type of age and artifacts. Spent 1-2 hours, got bored towards the end. Not everyone's cup of tea

Set aside a few hours of your day for this visit. We spent about 3 hours here and still didn't manage to get around to seeing everything. While it's not as modern and as well laid out as the Acropolis Musuem, there is a lot...More

We spent nearly 3 hours here and could have spent a lot more. Definitely recommend and probably should come here first.

Have wanted to visit for some time and finally made it on this trip. All the classical works that didn't go to the Louvre on British museum. Extensive history timeline and great special exhibits. A must along with the Acropolis museum.

I visited this gallery my sister and ten year old daughter. And I am so glad we did! The displays are brilliantly curated and the information provides a great deal of context to the artefacts on show.

One of the best archeological museums in the world after The Vatican, British Museum, and Cairo. Cheap (5 Euro) 10-min taxi ride from the Hilton. Be aware that they close and open certain rooms (exhibitions) throughout the day. Recommend trying to see everything that is...More

This is a must when in Athens. We took the Hop On Hop off Bus(RED) took right there. The glass cases were so clean a lady acually bumped her head because you can't see the glass. Camera's are allowed but NO flash. Take 2 hours...More

Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as

Yes, you can - and actually have to - leave your big belongings to a cloackroom. I guess it's the same with luggages!
