    Good choice for walk in centre with children. A thematic Museum that helps children discover the world and parents interact with children.

    The Museum is amazing for kids! Kathe fora Pou PAME is a new experience! Like children in the world of art and outside!

    Not a museum... This is more of a workshop/activity center. Still, the kids had a great time. Wouldn't recommend for kids over 7 years old.

    The museum offered a great experience for my children (aged 4 to 10). the staff is very very friendly and English speaking. while small, it offered a unique few hours of creativity and calm in the middle of Athens. unlike other museums where children see adult's artifacts, in this museum the children are participating in creating and changing the exhibit. the Museum is non-profit and free of charge but we happily donated to it to support it

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.
