Directions to Canellopoulos Museum

Situated at the base of the Acropolis, above the Ancient Agora, the Canellopoulos museum houses a private collection of art work and artefacts donated to the Greek state. Displayed in a beautiful neoclassical building, the art dates back to the prehistoric age up until the Byzantine Empire.

Τhe Museum's  exhibits displayed chronologically and thematically in two wings. To the right of the entrance, the new wing houses the collection of objects dating from the Prehistoric to the Roman age, while the old building hosts exhibits dating from the Early Christian to the Post-Byzantine age, as well as various exhibits from the Modern age.

In the new wing, among the exhibition spaces, there were uncovered and preserved in situ the ruins of a medieval house abutting a section of the Rizokastro, i.e. the fortification wall that protected the Acropolis during the 13th c. A.D.
