  • An exceptional place for children in Athens to play and learn. We spent there with my daughter 2,5 hours and we will definitely go back. She enjoyed the food pyramid of Mediterranean diet, the bubbles...  more »
  • Attention: The place is no longer in Plaka. Check out Google.maps. For kids top. Here you can let off steam during a city trip. Nearby you can also have a good and cheap lunch with children. Look at my reviews, there's where. Pay attention to opening hours. Closes at 3 p.m. on some days.

  • A nice place for younger kids. It is not very big but the pretend play grocery store is very impressive. One star taken off due to hard to find the entrance (at the back side, not the street-facing side) and no next-to-building parking lot (but Polis Park is close by). The best way to come here is by bus but it can be hard for parents with babies/toddlers. For non-Greek speaking kids/parents, the staff can communicate with in English but 99% of signs are in Greek. It is also worth visiting the Athens War Museum near by.
  • Can hardly be called a museum, more like an activity center. But our 8 yo had a great time. A little hard to find since there are no street signs. You simply have to walk into the building and search for the entrance.
