Directions to Frissiras Museum
The Frissiras Museum was founded by the Vlassis Frissiras family and has been set up in order to preserve and protect the past, display current work and create forthcoming cultural work. It houses the private collection of its art aficionado founder, Vlassis Frissiras. Over 40 years he has collated a collection of 3,500 contemporary paintings with an ideology, coherence and a precise purpose.
International Greek exhibitions by both established and younger artists have been hosted here in the two neoclassical buildings in Plaka. Both buildings are fine examples of Athenian neoclassical houses and were restored to their original form by the Frissiras family in the late 1990s. One of the buildings has preserved many of the architectural features of its period such as the internal yard and the glazed Athenian windows. The second building, designed by the architect Ernst Ziller, is considered to be one of the most important neoclassical examples in the Greek city, with its Ionian-style qualities.
