Offering an alternative way to discover Greek history, Numismatic Museum holds one of the world's largest collections of ancient and modern coins. Over half a million artifacts narrate the history of Athens from the 14th century BCE to the present day. In addition to coins, the museum displays thousands of medals and stamps, which come from various excavation sites in mainland Greece. The Neo-classical building, once a private home of celebrated archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, remains a major draw for architecture buffs. Spend some of your own modern coins in the shady cafe located in the museum garden.

  • Housed in Schliemann's House really worth visiting to admire the rare beauty ceiling! The report is quite interesting and positioned chronologically and historically. Worth during the visit to use and acoustic tour (it is free) which helps the visitor to understand the space as it gives a lot of information. The exterior-garden that houses the Museum's Café, also excellent, in a nice location. It is worth visiting the Museum in conjunction with brown after the visit.
