Museum of the City of Athens
On Thursday, 26 May 2011, our students from the Advanced 2 Greek course visited the Museum of the City of Athens (Vouros-Eutaxias Foundation), situated in the heart of Athens.
Since 1973, it has been housed in two of the capital’s oldest and most beautiful buildings in Klafthmonos Square. The Museum presents the modern history of Athens - from the time it became the capital of the newly founded Hellenic State in 1834- through its collections of paintings, engravings, sculptures, pieces of furniture, objects of everyday use and important relics.
The tour also includes many other exhibits of Athenian history, culture and life. Several other collections and a series of typical sitting and living rooms of the Athenian aristocracy complete the different aspects of our city on display at the Museum.
