  • If you are a teacher, you must see this special little museum. Loved sitting in the desks of days gone by and seeing the books, decorations, and school supplies. Very friendly staff.  more »

  • I came upon this museum by chance on the way to the Acropolis museum from Monastiraki and loved it! As we say in English it's small but perfectly formed - over three floors with a narrow staircase. There are displays of objects (including some terrifying textbooks) and classrooms set up with rows of desks and "forms" as they were called - I just about remember a few of them in my first secondary school in Britain. There's a brief account (in Greek and English) of the history of Greek education, including unexpectedly under the Metaxas dictatorship. The school group who were leaving as I arrived seemed to have enjoyed it! [Adult entrance €3.00, May 2018]
  • Cosy museum of the way school was presented to children back in the years after world war II.
