Art Museum Museum
The museum which sprawls over six acres, is divided into two main sections: the museum of contemporary Greek art and the folk art museum, both of which house collections that cover at least 2500 years of Greek history. The whole complex is laid out in a way that showcases the Greek spirit in a unique fashion. In the contemporary part, one of the most important and representative collections of its kind in the world is exhibited, comprising paintings, installations and sculptures by leading Greek artists, displaying a Greek interpretation of most of the international artistic currents of the second half of the 20th century.

The folk art section, is an extraordinary complex of 19th century buildings, courtyards and gardens or rather a re-adaptation and readjustment of traditional Greek architectural features housing antiquities, icons, ceramics, popular artifacts and objects used in daily Greek life centuries ago, in a manner, revealing their inherent beauty and their practical use.

The gardens, wild and consisting almost entirely of Mediterranean flora are an indispensable part of the museum being described by many as the most beautiful gardens in Athens.

  • The modern part of exhibits were far better than my expectation. One of the hidden jewels of Athens.
  • Maybe the best space to organise a wedding reception. The museum is ok, showing some interesting modern Greek art.
  • Excellent Wedding Organised here!!
  • Too false modern, post retro
  • Vorres Museum is a hidden pearl amongst all the museums of Athens. The location is superb, the exhibits incredible, and the teaching of young school children about modern art in the "basement" of the museum such a commendable effort, Thank you, Mr Vorres, for sharing your collections, both of modern art, and of Greek folk art, with the public.
