I came here for wander whilst killing time between leaving my hotel and before heading to the airport. I was impressed with this museum and seeing all of the old clay statues and pots, whilst at the same time learning about the history of the items that I was never aware of. It took maybe an hour to go round, but was worth it.

The museum is very well organized and maintained. They have 3 floors + extra place for temporary exhibitions. My favourite part was definitely the one on Greek Gods and about life in Athens. I believe it is worth visiting.
