  • Most older Greek museums are pretty terrible and you would expect this to be no exception. But it is! Though not hitech or interactive in the modern sense it will pleasantly surprise you with the breadth and importance of the exhibits as well as the variety of ways it gets people of all ages involved. My kids had a blast and I wanted to stay longer to check more stuff out. Also the planes outside are a pleasant diversion for a break. Thoroughly recommended. Not much nationalist crap, more than enough hard historical facts and details to make it worth it. Pretty sure you will learn a lot of things you couldn't imagine where in here.
  • Found the museum a bit underwhelming, especially for someone who doesn't take great interest in military (I have been to military-related museums that did impress and interest me, though). Also, lots of the bigger information plates are in Greek only. Anyway, free admission for students and 4EUR for adults is definitely fine. Lots of small exhibits and some bigger machinery outside.
  • Noce and well organized. Good experience with kids
  • Super weapons collection, some neat jets outdoors and a good academic collection on the top floor. If your not au fait with your modern Greek history some rooms are a bit difficult
  • Great museum. Well organized by time frames from oldest to newest events.
