Interesting little museum about the history of Athens, the University and the building itself. Literally in the shadow of the Acropolis, I was surprised that there weren't more visitors - most definitely worth the two Euro entry.

We were not able to go inside, but the outside did not disappoint us. So interesting looking at the fresco of this wonderful Museum of History. The portico is just amazing and so beautiful in color.

Although the fresco outside is OK, nothing very important, they wouldn't let us in at 2:30 in the Tuesday afternoon to visit inside.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
