Schedule a Free Call


  • Historical antiquities from the civilizations of Ancient Greece & Egypt
  • An array of well-preserved art & sculpture 
  • One of the largest collections of Ancient art under one awe-inspiring roof
The National Archaeological Museum is devoted to protecting and showcasing the cultural history of Ancient Greece.

The history that this Athens museum has on display is rivalled only by that of the building itself, having relocated with the changing of the capital city, facing natural disasters and both world wars since its founding in 1829.

Spend the day here as you wonder at the artifacts of the Ancient world on permanent display, delve deep into the rich history of Greek culture, and marvel at the grandeur of the museum and its collections.
