This is a 'history' museum rather than an art museum, although it has lots of art objects. It is extremely well curated, with clear information panels in Greek and in English. The exhibits cover all aspects of 'byzantine' life: history, politics, art, clothes, religion, jewellery,...More

Despite the fact that door is open and they will take your money, the inside of the building is not open. Lack of $ to pay staff we were told. Also told 50% of museum was open before we bought ticket. Only after buying ticket...More

I personally feel that this museum is a must see if you are in Athens and you have a little more time than just time for going on the Acropolis. It's really rich, set in a modern style but tells you the story of the...More

Part of the museum was under renovation, hence the one star. Excellent collection of the Byzantine and Christian artifacts. The museum should consider developing an audio guide. I would have liked to see more historical information but, it made me want to learn more about...More

It was ok, some nice pieces and great history. We were maybe a bit ‘ruinsed-out’ by the time we got here, but it was included in the unified ticket from Acropolis. I think, if you love this stuff, then go, but it’s not a ‘must...More

The absolutely fabulous collections of the Byzantine and Christian Museum are only partially available. Granted one is charged only half of the normal €8 entry fee, but when you absolutely “know” the quality of what you can’t see, this is small consolation. I was told...More

When we visited there were large sections of the museum that were closed, but there was enough open to make it worth our trip. The museum is right next to the War Museum, which is also worth your time. This museum's collection is housed in...More

Excellent museum for understanding. Don't hurry, stay at least 1 hour; just read, see and reflect! Ask for the written information, also.

You will need to travel into central Athens. Get the metro from Piraeus Port to Evvangelismos (is the closest stop to museum). Will take about 30 minutes.
