  • A very nice and separate museum on Tripodon Street. The exhibits were very interesting as I learned about the history of schools in Greece. It is aimed at all ages as for small children there are activities and for the big ones the memories wake up. What intrigued me is that the museum conducts seminars and conferences of museum education which pleasantly surprised me as it seems that these people love their work and want to evolve it.

  • I would like you to tell me about your answer concerning my 10/8/2019 critic, to tell me when and where you have published that your museum will be closed, especially when in the city (which is the most relevant with the museum), it was stated that you would It's open. And, of course, you have didn't even stick a briefing paper on the entrance. Please, your answer is identified (as is mine) and not Anonymi.

  • 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.
