  • Cool museum. Not stuff you see often.
  • wonderful view, polite staff
  • Note: the entrance is on Asomaton not as listed in the map. A charming small collection well worth the time. Although few in number, if you're a fan of historic textiles and astrolabes this is your kind of place.
  • Fascinating place to visit, and one of the few museums in Greece to feature non-Greek exhibits
  • Wonderful place, suitable for all ages. Well illustrated each work exhibited. Place with bathroom and bar. Accessible toilets and lift in all the rooms for disabled guests.

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.
