    A small well presented and interesting private museum situated in the station complex. With free entry. Well worth a visit if passing.  more »

    This museum, private is located in the central terminal of the train, in the hall of the station, located in front of the port of Piraeus. It is a very nice small museum with interesting objects from the beginning of the electric train. It is a pna that the descriptions and information are written only in Greek language as one could delve into history. I recommend to download an APP scanner and translator, and that way with your phone you scan and translate it. Visit it and if one is walking through the area, on Saturday popular fairs there which makes the ride a feast especially for them! The visit time is about 45 minutes. It is free.

    Everything is in Greek, but still quite interesting. Recommended if you have 15-30 spare minutes before your ferry.

    My personal favourite museum. It is free, very beautiful and cozy, located in an excellent spot, and maintained by the pensioners of OASA. Also it has the pest postcards and pins you can get for souvenir. It has english captions. A must for families, train lovers and not only.
