Vorres Museum, Paiania

#1 of 8 in Museums in East Attica Region
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.

  • A wonderful art venue which I met through an event. From children's works with recyclable materials to the exhibits of Greek artists in the interior and exterior space, this museum is definitely a pleasant surprise for the visitor. It occupies with the garden of 18 acres and is donated by the collector and former mayor Peanias I. Vorres.

  • An excellent museum that is a jewel for the city of Peania. In the main building are exhibited works of Greek artists, while in the folklore house you can see objects of our folk tradition. The museum's garden is what excites you and steals your heart when you visit it. I recommend it without any qualms.
