Visited this place with my kids school & even though we couldn't see everything as there is a lot to see. The kids loved it so we visited again with them.

The museum isn't satisfying at all, the collection is average, the only thing that attracted my attention was the Sword of George Byron. Although it's nice to see the Old Parliament.

We are history geeks and this museum did not disappoint. I think I finally understand the anger against the Turks and it has inspired me to read more about it. If you are into armory and guns, they have a great display. What was a...More

If you’re not accustomed to recent Greek history, this museum does a good job explaining it. You have artefacts from world war 1 & 2 and the museum houses typical Greek dresses, artillery, uniforms and even an old parliament setup. It’s a small museum so...More
