  • The Benaki Museum is located near of Keramikos - in a side street - somewhat hidden. There are ceramics, jewellery, tapestries and objects from the Islamic world. The exhibition is very "open" - you could say also "small": each a space on four floors. On the 5th floor there is a small restaurant with a terrace and beautiful views of the archaeological area of Keramikos. The entrance fee is quite high with 9 euro per person. Because you have to be already a huge fan of matter...

  • A small but rich Museum which is housed in a traditional House. It has easy access and elevator to all floors with exhibits and beautiful Brown on the top floor. Ematha too many things about the history of Islamic art, influences from neighbouring and distant peoples (such as Chinese), I saw beautiful exhibits in a quiet and calm environment. It's worth the effort to go.

The Museum entrance per person Euro 9.-secret. Also in the Museum of memories and souvenirs are sold there is a small store. It opens in the Museum's opening hours. The Center is also quite easy to access.

  • 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
