I visited today and went through a three floor exhibit of Picasso and Cocteau. It was very fascinating. The staff are quite amiable. The museum is a stone throw from Syntagma square where change of the guards takes place.

This is a building that houses exhibitions, concerts, theater plays etc. and for that, it does the job to an excellent degree. Its theater is nice, the exhibition space well lit and overall the presentation and cleanliness is top notch.

Not a major attraction on the tourist charts, this venue is a must for anyone staying in Athens a few days and wanting to sample real Athenian atmosphere. It is housed in a new-classical building, hosts high-end art exhibitions, has a very nice restaurant and a tiny theater where I recently enjoyed a lovely concert with the divine Myrsini Margariti...

Located near Sytayma open, Monday to Sunday 10 until 6, with an entrance fee of six euros. This building is an Art Gallery, including Cafe Merlin, an Art Shop and an amphitheatre in one. The art reminded me of my childhood, growing up and learning Greek in the UK and the books I used were exhibited at the art gallery.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
