Surrender to realityModernism existed in ancient times

Cycladic arts Are Bar None Fascinating, strangely modern, bereft of symbolic jargon And timeless in their aesthetic appeal. A wonderful day, good cafe.

In this museum the life time job of the founder is exhibited. In this museum not only the exhibits but every exhibit analysis is important for understanding natural life in Earth and especially in Hellas. Events that take place also during Holidays are very attractive for the children.

We have been there with our kids. The museum is not so big, but there is a lot of interesting exhibits. The kids liked it. The museum is located in a very beautiful neighborhood, north of Athens.

Visited during the annual business xmas party with colleagues and their families. Children tours to the museum and the Gaia exhibits were held by professional and experienced personnel. Food was great and catering staff very polite. A must visit when in the area in any occasion, business or personal.

It's a very interesting museum, classically designed. By visiting the museum you can educate about a lot of things.

We sadly heard that the museum is going to shut down permanently. I hope is not true.. Offers a range of animal and bird spieces very well preserved and displayed. A lot to learn from the rocks in the lower floor. Perfect for a day out with children

A very interesting, even though relatively small, Natural History Museum but with huge contribution to the creation of environmental awareness in Greece. It will be something that small kids will enjoy and grown ups may use in order to either remind themselves of things that they may have forgotten or quite simply learn new things.

We went for a few hours before lunch and had a great time. Our 3 year old had a great time and the animal displays particularly kept his interest. It is easy to find. Very reasonably priced and the exhibits are great.
