  • my kids aged 10 & 8 spent a quiet 2 hrs here and it was nice. we had time to kill in the Plaka and this was a nice way to spend it. A nice place to visit and spend some time if you are around this pla...  more »
  • Good choice for walk in centre with children. A thematic Museum that helps children discover the world and parents interact with children.

  • Really good visit for those with young children. The 4 year old with us had a great time shopping and selling goods as well as making bubbles. Free in which is another bonus. We then took in the Greek soldiers in Greek costume doing the changing of the guard one block away. Would be nice if there was a sign at the entrance to confirm you were at the right place.
  • Experiment! Learn! Play! I don't know if the chocolate factory still exists, or cookies are still baked or the little toy store still exists (it should!) but the building itselt is unique, the (volunteers) staff is excellent, nice and joyfull.
  • A marvelous place for children with a unique idea by volunteers. A must visit if you have little kids.
  • 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
  • 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.

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.
