National Historical Museum
Things to do in
Plan to spend a good few hours here
Athens has a rich history, enjoying influence over several eras of rule. The museum is well appointed and easily breaks up different timelines or types of artefacts to enjoy, making it really easy to get lost in the story of Greece!
Our favourite piece was probably the bronze statue of a young jockey on horseback, but there's plenty from which to choose! Several small areas of the museum have undergone significant modernisation and with great results. However, the floor plan is relatively straightforward and visitors can easily while the hours away, strolling through pottery, yes, but also medallions, coins, weaponry, mythology, and more...
This location is only slightly outside of the city centre at Athens. Stay local and walk, especially during the popular summer season. Private vehicle may be chartered.
