  • It is situated not far from the acropolis but on some side streets the tourist hordes ignore. It is cheap and worth a stop. Interesting to see how education is a political football everywhere.  more »

  • Nice little museum. I was travelling Athens on a budget, but this tiny museum was only €3 to enter, and I'm glad I invested my money into it. There is a rich collection of old items associated with school and the history of education in Greece, including uniforms, books, notebooks, writing utensils, and furniture. There are 3 levels, a small museum shop, and information panels in English. The courtyard is adorable and the museum is quite hidden from the tourist gaze - I discovered it completely accidentally. The most interesting part, personally, was the history of how education was used as a propaganda tool in the 20th century. I recommend making this museum a short stop on your Athens sightseeing journey.
  • Very friendly staff and nice museum.
