  • Any car nut has to visit this place. Loads of shiny, well-loved, and rare cars here. Beautifully presented and often very quiet there. Bit pricey.  more »
  • Great automotive museum located in the heart of Athens. The purpose built building showcases the eclectic collection. Highly recommended for any car enthusiast.  more »
  • Don't know it is there, incidental to the anakalypsa which is our second honeymoon & what relationship with aytokinaita for my anipsio. Finally, with many cars from old enough, in Hara LIGO! The very venues and personnel and the cars like new.

  • Great place. Cars from many different times. If you get bored with ancient columns or just like cars you should definitely visit this place. Don't get distracted on the weekends as the place looks from the street like closed. And Google Maps have wrong opening hours suggesting the closure. The museum though is open and you can reach it using the spiral staircase or a lift. I advise you to check the opening hours on the museum's site on FB.
  • I'm really happy that I found this place on the map. Recommend it for visiting, a dream place for car lovers. There you can see great cars!
  • An Excellent Museum and close ... Excellent food and coffee An excellent private collection - Car Museum, an incredible large collection of cars that have stitched up their own story. And at the end of Ioulianou street just at the exit of the Metro at Larissa Station, ... Excellent food ,Souvlaki ,Gyros Greek salad, potatoes, feta at very low prices and a nice place for coffee and cool. Your visit is worthwhile
  • Great automotive museum with an eclectic collection of cars located in an amazing building built for this collection. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful, much more than I expected from a private collection(4 flours). Really worth looking at it even if you are not the biggest car lover.

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.
