ancientgreekart.jpgNational Archeological Museum

This museum, one of the greatest in the world, is a must see if you care for history and archeology. The Cycladic idols, the impressive collection of vases, the tall Kouros statues and the splendid classical sculptures stand out for their beauty. Among the most popular exhibits is the 3,600 year old gold mask of Agamemnon. There is even an ancient device from the first century BC, which is considered to be the world's oldest computer. A section of the museum also contains exhibits from Ancient Egypt.

The museum is housed in a nice neo classical building, in a area that is rundown these last years. Don’t let this stop you from visiting this beautiful museum!
