The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST) began its operation in 2000. Since 2016, its permanent home is the former Fix brewery on Syngrou Ave., the reconstruction of which was completed in 2014. The Museum’s constantly growing collection is formed around a very important nucleus of works by Greek and international artists.

Core strategic goal of EMST remains its full operations, with the equipment and implementation of the approved plans for the installation of its permanent collection on the three top floors, the operation of the media lounge, and the completion of the screening and conference room, the library, the archives, the roof terrace and other areas. During the same time, the public tender for the operation of the café and restaurant will also have been completed.
