  • Definitely a unique museum. There are numerous jewelry collections inspired from ancient Greece and many other civilizations. The building that houses the museum is neoclassical and it is very close to Acropolis museum. Every Saturday entrance is free. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing place, kind and polite staff, very informed about the collections. Nice designs and curating. I was pleased.
  • Great place for jewelry lovers.small place but elegant. Loved the store too.
  • Small "museum" with pieces inspired by historical artifacts. Free on Saturdays fortunately so we enjoyed our 15 minutes inside and then had a laugh the rest of the day as we walked by jewelry stores in the city and called them museums. Many of the pieces were quite beautiful but you would have to have a particular fondness for the jeweler himself to make it worth a stop with so many other things to see in Athens.
  • A wonderful small musem with the latest jewelry creations by the Lalaounis family. Worth stopping by while visiting the Parthenon and the Acropolis museum. It's only around the corner and worth it!
