  • Has abundance of cars from very old (around 1910) to decade 80-90. With enough information for each. A different museum worth visiting.

  • We had unfortunately only for a short time and were still overwhelmed by this very nice cross section of automotive history. Especially, that all vehicles belonged to a collector, who also drives many of the cars. Alfas also very interesting in addition to highlights from Bughatti (3 x) and Ferrari and GB cars. - and then the cars from Greek production - presented interesting and probably nowhere else so interesting. Also the architecture of the building is worth seeing and also comes from the collector. The staff is very nice and relaxed. We could admire the cars even more relaxed slightly beyond the opening time.

  • Very nice if you are a cars fanatic. A very good collection with plenty of cars from all ages.
  • Interesting museum. Cars from the beginning of 20th century
  • Have been there 3 times (twice with kids that absolutely love it), and it always feels fresh as the museum has dozens of cars that span from the start of the 20th century until the 1980s, with detailed descriptions and history of each. The transparency section is also excellent with real engines having been cut through to see the various components.
  • Pretty impressive bunch of cars. They leave you to your own devices with minimal supervision. At €5, it's a definite bargain. Only downside is that they have only 100 or so cars. Worth a onetime visit for sure.
  • Five or six floor big museum with old and new cars

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.
