  • The Museum is located in a very good spot and paired easily with a ride in kifissia. As the Museum is very small, with limited exhibits and some of them poor quality. There are no exhibits on marine life, while, without any relevance to the rest of the Museum, shows a skeleton trikeratwps with cats and birds, creating confusion for younger guests. Some storefronts are exhibits that have been moved from their original location and many explanatory signs are difficult to match with the exhibits. The image of some animals is reminiscent of low-level efforts of small provincial museums. The surroundings are excellent and should be part of the visit.

  • Cycladic arts Are Bar None Fascinating, strangely modern, bereft of symbolic jargon And timeless in their aesthetic appeal. A wonderful day, good cafe.  more »
  • In a nice neighborhood in Kifisia is available in the Museum. Parking in the area. Multi micro Museum with exhibits. Beautiful neoklasiki courtyard. Replica Must trikeratopa.

  • I used to think very highly of this museum and having been there thrice as a kid I expected it to be truly fascinating. Instead I came across a lack of care for the guests in all levels. There was a place where you could supposedly leave things (coats, bags and such) but no one was at the booth and never appeared, there was no air-conditioning though it was hot and there is no flow from one part of the exhibition to the next and no new signs to point the guest to the right direction. The things in the displays are interesting but it has gotten old and no one has cared to upgrade it to current standards. I feel sad looking at my favourite museum turn out like that...
  • Nice place to have coffee and has a lot of space for the kids. Quiet during the week for a nice after work drink. Weekends are full of families, but still a nice place to be
  • Nice garden and outdoor area.
  • Excellent for kids
  • Nice place to visit.
