This museum is an ideal place to visit if you wish to study the Greek civilization through the remnants and objects that state their own stories.

  • Very good museum

  • Small selection spread over a few rooms. The Byzantine section was closed when I visited so it was hard to assess how big that is. Only the classical section was open.

  • Different opening hours are published in internet on the official webpage of the ministry of culture. When we went there we had only 15 minutes left, because the museum closed at 3 p.m. and not at 4.30 p.m. as published on the website! The people at the museum knew about that problem, but at the ministry apparently nobody bothers....

  • Very educational for greek and foreign school kids. Program tutors are great, very kind and helpful!

  • A diachronic (archaeological and byzantine) museum. Situated very close to acropolis. The Byzantine collection has many Postbyzantine portable icons as well as juelery and woodcarves. The archaelogical collection covers from from the cycladic civilisation to romaic times with many figures and pots. The two collections are rich and some of the items are very nice. There is also a small agyptian collection. Overall it's a nice museum to visit. Sadly the museum is almost empty as very few tourists know about it. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Because the museum doesn't attract many visitors it is highly understuffed for the most part of the year. So (apart from some months in summer) there is only one room open out of six, rendering the museum practically closed. I recommend asking about how many of the rooms are open to the public before buying a ticket.9
