The museum which sprawls over six acres, is divided into two main sections: the museum of contemporary Greek art and the folk art museum, both of which house collections that cover at least 2500 years of Greek history. The whole complex is laid out in a way that showcases the Greek spirit in a unique fashion. In the contemporary part, one of the most important and representative collections of its kind in the world is exhibited, comprising paintings, installations and sculptures by leading Greek artists, displaying a Greek interpretation of most of the international artistic currents of the second half of the 20th century.

The folk art section, is an extraordinary complex of 19th century buildings, courtyards and gardens or rather a re-adaptation and readjustment of traditional Greek architectural features housing antiquities, icons, ceramics, popular artifacts and objects used in daily Greek life centuries ago, in a manner, revealing their inherent beauty and their practical use.

The gardens, wild and consisting almost entirely of Mediterranean flora are an indispensable part of the museum being described by many as the most beautiful gardens in Athens.

  • Don't miss the oportunity to visit this place! A stunning collection of paintings and modern art, a remarkable folklore museum and a beautiful garden for strolling. The ticket costs only 5€ and includes a guided tour! The guide was excellent! There is also a small coffee shop in the garden!
  • A hidden artistic oasis in the suburbs of Athens. Get the tour which is so informative. I saw amazing paintings. A beautiful garden awaits for a bite or a drink - ideal in the summer.
