  • Compared to public and not museums say deprived of the French front in the great war or World War II, or the very Spanish Civil War. About Lepanto very little information. Maybe in the damascening armament of influences of both Ottoman and Greek East during the war of independence is denoted the decline of the Ottoman Empire.

  • Great Museum for adults and tits! Intended historical things from all times and from the Elladiko and European space

  • Our son loves this place. The exhibits are well presented and many, but the staff (often serving military) are always very welcoming.  more »

  • They don't have many pieces in their collection ( though to be fair it's only 4 euros) but the pieces they do have not everything is explained of what it is or why it's important. Their random collection of various weapons and armor from around the world most of the time doesn't even have any descriptions at all! A museum should take more care in giving this type of information in my opinion. This is not worth coming to see to be quite frank, save the time and little bit of money.
  • Absolutely one of the best war museums, some texts in greek only, but still very good. Greek military from ancient times to modern.
  • didnt like the fact that they kick you out of the museum at 5 or 6 oclock
  • A very well organised place for making presentations and public speeches from organisations.
  • Some very interesting exhibits. Unfortunately, some of the descriptions are in Greek only. A must see for anyone interested in Greek history.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
