Amazing building to store the history of Greece in coins. The visitor can learn a lot of information about the architect who lived in this villa with his family. A wealth of knowledge for all ages!

Even if you have no real interest in coins, the building alone is worth a look. We visited as part of the 15 euro multi ticket purchased from the Archaeological Museum and enjoyed it even more! Lots of ancient coins from the region to see...More
