4.5
#10 of 72 in Museums in Athens
Offering an alternative way to discover Greek history, Numismatic Museum holds one of the world's largest collections of ancient and modern coins. Over half a million artifacts narrate the history of Athens from the 14th century BCE to the present day. In addition to coins, the museum displays thousands of medals and stamps, which come from various excavation sites in mainland Greece. The Neo-classical building, once a private home of celebrated archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, remains a major draw for architecture buffs. Spend some of your own modern coins in the shady cafe located in the museum garden. Take the guesswork out of planning a Athens vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Great place to go if you collect ancient coins. They have some high quality material. I saw one Athenian decadrahcm in the collection.
