We were very pleased with our private tour of the Vorres Museum. Nektarios (sp?) was a great guide and walked us through each piece and it's significance or relation to Greek history. The combination of contemporary art and walking though the time periods of Greek culture and ending the tour by strolling through the beautiful Mediterranean garden.

The museum is located in the former home of a former mayor of Paiania, a suburb of Athens not far from the airport. It contains an events venue, a modern art museum, which contains a number of pieces by well-known Greek artists, and the actual house itself. The house was the highlight for me, personally. It contained a huge variety... More

When you get at the museum, you enter through an old entrance, when you walk through the old part it looks great already. When you enter the new part of the building, you are in for a surprise. Just one word...amazing! We had a gala dinner at this museum, perfect location!

The museum has a collection of around 100 paintings covering a variety of genres by contemporary Greek artists which are displayed in the light, airy, galleries. My guess (and it is only that) is that this is unique in Athens. I have managed to restrict myself to only uploading a handful of photographs, but I hope they are sufficient to... More

We visited Vorres Museum with friends and we were impressed with the collection of folk art as well as the modern paintings and sculpture on display. The museum is located in the town of Paiania in a quiet neighborhood and has a most enchanting garden decorated with various forms of sculpture and artwork. We hope to visit the museum again...

This is an amazing museum, the fruit of one man's passion and vision. It has one of the finest collections of modern Greek art in Greece as well as an eclectic display of folk art and culture set in wonderfully peaceful and shady extensive courtyard gardens. It should be on the must see list for visitors to Athens.

The premises of this foundation sprawl over six acres and hide from curious eyes one of the most beautiful Mediterranean gardens of Attica. The exhibition is divided into two main sections and in two different locations. The paintings and the sculptures of the museum of contemporary Greek art are exhibited inside an impressive modern building while in its wide courtyard... More
