Directions to Museum Herakleidon

The Herakleidon museum is situated right in the centre of Athens, in the shadow of the globally recognised Acropolis. In a restored neoclassic building the museum has a history of its own, almost as complex as the Acropolis! The Herakleidon has been inviting in guests since the summer of 2004 and has always had a full and varied exhibition programme. All of the featured artists are well renowned figures in the artistic world and have all in some way left their mark on the evolution of the art movement. Indeed this is what the Herakleidon aims to show visitors through its galleries and presentations.

Paul Firos and his wife Anna-Belinda, collectors and art lovers, were inspired to create this new private museum by their personal love of neoclassic buildings and their commitment to preserving such buildings around the city. This is combined with their desire to share with others their enthusiasm for the fine arts and thus contribute to the artistic life of Athens.

The unique selling point about the Herakleidon museum is that it focuses on artists as individuals and their careers, how they have evolved and peaked at certain points and used techniques to create an individual flair. To accomplish this, not only will works of the artist be on exhibit, but also preparatory sketches, drawings, photographs and personal items from their life that tell a story about the person. Audio guides provide complete and detailed information on the life of the artist, each phase of his or her work, and his or her techniques.

In addition to the permanent collections, the museum hosts temporary exhibitions of work by Greek and foreign artists. The museum also hosts other events, such as musical performances, literary events and book presentations. As well as those which have no connection to the artistic worlds, scientific seminars, corporate presentations, conferences, and lectures.
