The Hellenic Motor museum offers a different kind of tourist experience in Athens other than an indulgence into antiquity. As expected from its name, this museum is devoted to motor cars and their history. Designed by Theodoros N. Charagionis, Executive Chairman of Charagionis Group, this museum documents the history of automobiles with special focus on road safety via educational screenings and lectures.
Some of the highlights here include:
- Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant's 1959 Chrysler Imperial
- Formula 1 driver Lorenzo Bandini's personal 1953 Lancia Aurelia
- 1979 Cadillac Seville Gucci with its Gucci-designed interior and exterior fitments.
Apart from these highlights this museum also houses a 3D cinema, the Museum Store, an eight-storey underground garage with 800 car park seats and a luxury resort style central square, with restaurants and coffee shops. A visit over here will introduce you to the contemporary Greece, a feature that is quite different from your general visits to ancient archaeological sites here.

Hellenic Motor Museum Reviews & Ratings
Interesting private car museum. 120 mostly vintage and antique cars (very few contemporary) that are being rotated twice a year, to make you come back to check whats new. The region in which its located, is not so safe to hang out after 6:00pm during winter time...
Won't say anything... Simply... A noisefree place. That's what I like..... To see cars... Silently...
A great selection of cars, well displayed. Good information on each vehicle, makes for an interesting and informative experience.
Very complete and full of history. Lots of beautiful cars.
Wow! Never have I ever seen a larger collection of cars spanning from the very early motors 19th century, up to the latest Ferrari models of today. It’s a one of a kind museum in Greece, and is worth a visit... P.S. There is a whole floor of Ferraris and a F1 emulator for kids (and grown-ups!)
